Murata has added to its DFE series of power inductors that have been developed particularly for use within in-vehicle applications such as ADAS, automotive infotainment systems and power-train components. Offering what is claimed to be the industry’s highest levels of ESD surge voltage protection, the compact AEC-Q200 compliant devices offer high insulation and ESD characteristics. The DFE2HCAH series measures 2.5mm x 2mm x 1.2mm and provides 1kV protection, and the DFE2MCAH series measures 2mm x 1.6mm x 1.2mm and is rated at 500V ESD protection. Both series are fabricated using the company’s metal alloy material and accommodate the automotive operating temperature range from -40C to +150C.
In addition to the high ESD protection features the compact dimensions of the new power inductors ensure the minimum of PCB space is needed, assisting designers in accommodating today’s space-constrained applications. Inductance values offered are in the range of 0.33µH to 2.2µH with a value-dependent maximum current rating of 5.8A.
AVX Corporation has released a new series of miniature, surface-mount, J-lead tantalum capacitors that give high reliability and high volumetric efficiency in high-temperature industrial and automotive applications.
Complementary to its DC-DC converter portfolio, RECOM now provides its RLS line inductor series, which has been pre-tested to meet both conducted and radiated interference limits.
Cornell Dubilier has availability of its Type RA multilayered film capacitors for 125C operation. The capacitors are built using stacked metallised polyester protected with an impregnated sealant, which excludes the requirement for an external case.
TT Electronics has combined miniaturisation with economy in the PSM050S-10B10KB – part of the PSM series of long-life miniature PCB mount slide potentiometers for audio, consumer, medical, and industrial applications.
