TAIYO YUDEN CO., LTD. has announced today the launch of the AEC-Q200 qualified wire-wound ferrite power inductors LCXH series, which consists of 64 items in 6 sizes including LCXHF3030QK.
These power inductors are designed for use as choke coils or noise filters in power supply circuits for automotive body systems and information systems such as infotainment ECUs.
The LCXH series has the same sleeveless structure as the LCXP and LCXN series (former product name: NR series S-type), which have been used in consumer and automotive products markets. The materials technology and structural design that we have nurtured have both been further sophisticated, and the electrodes are structured such that improved flatness can be achieved when mounted and automated optical inspection (AOI) can be carried out during manufacturing processes.
Production of the products commenced at our overseas subsidiary company, TAIYO YUDEN (PHILIPPINES), INC. (Lapulapu City, Cebu, the Philippines), from March 2022, with a sample price of 50 to 100 yen per unit.
Recently, produced vehicles have been equipped with an ever-greater number of electronic control units, typified by ADAS units. This requires a greater number of power supply circuits, which boosts the demand for power inductors used inside them. In addition, camera-based visual inspections and mounting inspections with an X-ray inspection system are used to evaluate the reliability of soldering in vehicle manufacturing
processes, which requires power inductors to have electrodes that are structured to adapt to such inspection systems.
In response to this requirement, TAIYO YUDEN sophisticated the materials technology and design it had nurtured, including the sleeveless structure with its advantageous compact size and high current capacity, and launched the LCXH series, in which electrodes are structured to meet such requirements for automotive products.
The LCXH series is available as 64 items in total, with a wide selection of characteristics, ranging from 3-mm to 6-mm square in size, to satisfy demand for use in various devices comprising automotive body systems and information systems such as infotainment ECUs.
Choke coils or noise filters in power supply circuits for automotive body systems such as TPMS and information systems such as telematics and other infotainment ECUs.
