Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., has added the 0806-inch size (2.0 × 1.6 mm) DFE201612PD series to its DFE_PD series of Metal Alloy inductors. Suitable for the power supply of automotive information equipment such as infotainment systems, this product conforms to AEC-Q200 and supports a maximum operating temperature of 125°C. It achieves a rated current of 2.2A (at 1μH), or approximately twice the rated current of 1.0A (at 1μH) for a ferrite multilayer base power inductor of the same size(*1). Mass production of the product has already started.
Digital and information equipment were mainly used in the consumer market, but are also now mounted in automobiles. As a result, Demand is increasing for compact, high-current power inductors used in information electronics in automotive applications which higher reliability. Therefore, Murata has modified its DFE201612P series of compact, high-current power inductors to realize a maximum operating temperature of 125°C, and has introduced the DFE201612PD series of power inductors that also supports AEC-Q200. Going forward, Murata plans to further expand its lineup of sizes and develop highly reliable inductors that can support high temperatures and high currents for automotive applications.
