A growing number of car manufacturers are deciding to utilise high-voltage equipment with a view to enhancing the comfort of driving or general vehicle users' experience.
The C305FL, C550FL, C750FL and C1000FL series broadband microwave RF conical inductors provide DC current handling up to 10 A and low insertion loss.
The WE-CPIB HV double chokes, featuring 2 kV isolation voltage, come in a 4828 package.
Würth Elektronik has released the WE-MTCI SMT multiturn ratio double choke — the company's smallest double choke yet (5030 package) with different winding ratios from 1:1.5 to 1:3.
Würth Elektronik eiSos has expanded its portfolio of AEC-Q-qualified products with the WE-CHSA high-current inductor. The ferrite core design of the power choke has an air gap optimally centred to ensure a precisely defined saturation current.
The Coilcraft LPD8035V series offers high-isolation miniature coupled 1:1 inductors that provide 1500 Vrms 1-minute isolation between windings in a small package. It is said to offer significant size reductions over conventional bobbin-wound alternatives.
The induction cooktop is quite popular, both in domestic and commercial usage, and is considered one of the advanced technological innovations in the field of cooking.
Vishay's Inductors Division has introduced an online ferrite bead impedance calculator, which is claimed to be the first in the industry.
TDK Corporation has extended its portfolio of EPCOS ERU SMT power inductors with the ERU19 choke series. Designed for operating temperatures of between -40 and +150°C, the high-current devices can be used as output and storage chokes in a wide variety of power supply topologies.
Measuring 2 x 1.6 x 1 mm, the TDK TFM201610ALMA thin-film metal power inductor features a current of 1.9 A and inductance of 2.2 µH. Despite its miniature dimensions, the component provides a low DC resistance of 152 mΩ.
Offering a wide range of inductance values from 0.33 to 10 µH and low profiles of 0.8 and 1 mm, respectively, the Vishay Dale IHHP-1212ZH-01 and IHHP-1212AZ-01 power inductors are designed to save space and increase efficiency in portable electronics.
Vishay Intertechnology has expanded its IHLD series of low-profile, high-current dual inductors with a device in the 3232 case size. Offering a high operating temperature range to 155°C, the automotive-grade IHLD-3232HB-5A saves board space by combining two inductors in one 9.75 x 9.14 mm package.
TDK Corporation has developed a series of rugged power inductors for use in automotive electronics. The CLF6045NI-D wirewound SMD power inductors feature high efficiency over a wide temperature range extending from -55 to +150°C.
Bourns has introduced an SMD power inductor series that includes nine devices designed for automotive applications - the SDE0403A, SDE0604A, SDE0805A, SRF0703A, SRF0905A, SRF1280A, SRR0745A, SRR1210A and SRR6040A.
TOKO has announced the MDT series of multilayer ferrite chip power inductors. The company's architecture creates robust, magnetically shielded, multilayer ferrite power inductors offering low resistance and high current handling in a miniature footprint.
