High current inductor is for automotive applications

Würth Elektronik eiSos expands its portfolio of AEC-Q-qualified products with a high current inductor. The patented ferrite core design of the power choke has an air gap optimally centred to ensure a precisely defined saturation current. WE-CHSA can be used in the extended temperature range of -55 up to +150 degree C.

The design with air gap enables extremely high saturation currents up to 54A. The magnetically shielded package of the WE-CHSA assures a low stray field and the embedded solder pads offer optimal co-planarity while allowing good automatic optical inspection (AOL) capability, says Würth Elektronik eiSos. The rated current of the power choke extends to 28A.

The inductor is available in package sizes of 8.0 x 8.0 x 9.0mm, 10 x 10 x 11mm and 12 x 12 x 12mm. For the rapid development phase, the complete series is available in a design kit.

WE-CHSA is particularly suitable for applications in the automotive industry, such as in powertrain control devices, in infotainment systems or in high current application for e-mobility.

Würth Elektronik eiSos manufactures of electronic and electromechanical components. It has production sites in Europe, Asia and North America. The portfolio encompasses EMC components, inductors, transformers, HF components, varistors, capacitors, power modules, LEDs, wireless technology, plug connectors, power supply elements, wireless power coils, switches, connection technology and fuse holders.
