KEMET Electronics Corporation has launched a new family of metal composite power inductors for the automotive market. The inductors are designed for switching power supplies in Electronic Control Units (ECUs). Available in various industry-standard SMD footprints, MPXV inductors can operate at temperatures up to 155° C, and can be used in all areas of the vehicle. A metal composite material molded around the inductor coil core shields neighboring electronics from EMI. These devices meet AEC-Q200 requirements.
“Our experience and expertise in high-permeability inductor material development and production allow us to introduce devices with differentiated performance to meet and exceed the needs of the latest applications in sectors such as automotive,” said Dr. Philip Lessner, KEMET Senior VP and CTO. “With their robust performance, high reliability and energy-saving features, MPXV inductors provide a dependable, easy-to-design-in solution.”
