TAIYO YUDEN CO., LTD. announced the launch of the AEC-Q200 qualified LAXH series of ferrite power inductors, and has begun the mass production of 16 items including the LAXHG6060YEL1R0NMR (6.0×6.0x4.5mm).
These products are designed for choke coils and noise filters for DC-DC converters, which are power supply circuits used in automobile engines, transmissions, and other powertrain components.
The LAXH series adopts a sleeveless structure with its advantageous compact size and high current capacity, and the upper limit of its operating temperature range has been raised to 150°C from that of our existing LCXH series (operating temperature range: -40°C to +125°C).
Furthermore, by applying our metal core material technology and using metal material for the outer resin, the series delivers a large current capacity at a DC saturation allowable current of 13.5A (inductance value 1.0μH), or twice that of our existing LAYP series “LAYPH06045DL1R0NGA” (6.3×6.0x4.5mm, inductance value 1.0μH, DC saturation allowable current: 6.7A) with an operating temperature limit of 150°C.
Production of the products commenced at our overseas subsidiary company, TAIYO YUDEN (PHILIPPINES), INC. (Lapulapu City, Cebu, the Philippines) in January 2023, with a sample price of 150 yen per unit.
Recently, new 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 particular, ECUs are increasingly being installed in high-temperature engine compartments, and the electronic components installed must be able to handle high temperatures.
In response to these needs, TAIYO YUDEN has adopted a sleeveless structure with its advantageous compact size and high current capacity, and applied the metal materials technologies it has nurtured in its metal power inductors “MCOIL™” to commercialize this LAXH series which delivers an operating temperature limit of 150°C, and large current capacity at a DC saturation allowable current of 13.5A (inductance value 1.0μH). TAIYO YUDEN focuses on the development of products that meet market needs, and will continue to
expand its power inductor product lineup.
