Bourns Introduces POC Automotive Chip Inductor

Bourns introduces AEC-Q200 compliant automotive grade chip inductor series as space-saving solution for POC Power over Coax circuits.

Bourns Model CWP3230A AEC-Q200 compliant automotive grade inductors series features high current, inductance and impedance in a compact form factor.

The new power inductor series’ high impedance and current capabilities make them ideal for applications using coaxial cable, where both power and video signals are simultaneously transmitted. Bourns® Model CWP3230A Series enables designers to decrease the number of inductors and chip beads in circuit, to save space and reduce development costs.

The CWP3230A Series is designed with a ferrite powder core, and bifilar and trifilar windings to achieve a higher saturation current and heating current level in a small size. The series has an inductance range of 2.2 – 47 µH and an operating temperature range of -50 to +150 °C. These features are required in a growing variety of space-constrained ADAS applications that must also meet lower power consumption goals such as in Power over Coax (PoC) vehicle camera modules.

The Bourns® Model CWP3230A Chip Inductor Series is available now and is RoHS compliant and halogen free.
