The nine series types cover an inductance range of 2 x 2.2 µH to 2 x 47 µH and are designed for maximum rated currents of 1.1 A to 4.3 A. The RoHS-compliant chokes are certified in line with AEC-Q200 and feature high saturation currents of up to 7.95 A.
TDK Corporation has developed a series of thin-film metal power inductors for automotive power circuits. The new TFM201210ALMA inductors feature a mounting area downsized approximately 22 % from TDK’s conventional product, TFM201610ALMA (2.0 mm (L) x 1.6 mm (W) x 1.0 mm (H)).
Extended its range of EPCOS ERU-SMT power inductors with the new ERU19, ERU24 and ERU27 (B82559*) series. Each product line is comprised of up to 10 types, covering inductance values from 1.0 µH to 30 µH. Overall, a range of saturation currents at 25 °C from 11.5 A DC to 101.5 A DC is covered.
The capacitance range of the B3292*P series ranges from 0.033 µF to 5.6 µF, and the maximum rated voltage is 305 V AC. Even under harsh environmental conditions, the capacitors offer a stable capacitance value, verified by the thermal humidity bias test with basic conditions of 85 °C, 85% relative humidity and an operating voltage of 240 V AC, for a duration of 500 hours.
Power capacitors with high-current capability that can withstand significant voltage fluctuations and surges help achieve stable voltage in HVDC systems over the long-distance transmission of electricity, as explained by TDK featured article.
Automotive LANs are roughly categorized into 4 systems such as body, safety, powertrain and multimedia/information, and telecommunications. This product supporting CAN and CAN-FD enables a fivefold data transmission speed of 5 Mbps. Currently, CAN is the most widely used standard for body and other systems, keeping a maximum data transmission speed of 1 Mbps.
Components operating in high vibration and wide operating temperature environments such, as automotive electronics, have to absorb both board flexure stress and stress from the expansion and contraction of solder joints due to thermal shock. Thereby manufactures have developed conductive soft resin-polymer as the thermo-mechanical shock absorber improving connection reliability compare to conventional electrodes. TDK has present its explanation in article below.
These chokes are available in three sizes with current handling capacities between 10 A and 17 A, and with a rated voltage of 250 V AC (50/60 Hz). Depending on the type, the inductance value is between 1.0 mH and 6.25 mH. The plastic material of the base plate and spacer in the middle of the ring core conforms with UL 94 V-0, and the highest CTI value of >600.
