Inductors protect for ADAS and powertrain components

Inductors in the DFE series from Murata have been developed specifically for use within in-vehicle applications such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), automotive infotainment systems and powertrain components.

According to Murata, they offer the industry’s highest levels of electrostatic discharge (ESD) surge voltage protection. The compact AEC-Q200-compliant devices provide high insulation and ESD characteristics.

Within the series, the DFE2HCAH series measures 2.5 x 2.0 x 1.2mm and provides 1kV protection, the DFE2MCAH series measures 2.0 x 1.6 x 1.2mm and is rated at 500V ESD protection. Both are fabricated using Murata’s metal alloy material and accommodate the automotive operating temperature range from -40 to +150 degrees C.

Inductance values available are in the range of 0.33 to 2.2 microH with a value-dependent maximum current rating of 5.8A.
