Murata introduces LQW15CN_0Z/1Z series of AEC-Q200-compliant wire-wound inductors, ideal for automotive camera applications and NFC circuits
In anticipation of the self-driving cars of the future, there has been an increase in development of on-board equipment aimed at enhancing vehicle driving and safety systems. This state of affairs has driven demand for smaller, higher-performance high-frequency inductors to be used for RF circuit matching and choke coils in vehicle-mounted equipment. To meet this demand, Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has been focusing on the development of high-frequency inductors for automotive applications.
Murata’s new LQW15CN_0Z/1Z series is a line of AEC-Q200-compliant wire-wound inductors for the automotive market. This inductor takes advantage of physical characteristics that make it possible to obtain large inductance in a small size, and designers can use it to efficiently configure the BiasTee circuits used in vehicle-mounted cameras.
The product can also be used for NFC matching circuits, which benefit from the low loss characteristics that are a feature of winding type inductors. As an automotive version of an inductor with a proven track record in general consumer applications, it can be used with confidence in on-board NFC circuits.
- Achieves large inductance in a compact 0402 size (1.0×0.5mm) using a ferrite core
- Achieves large rated current and low DC resistance characteristic of wire-wound inductors
