TAIYO YUDEN Develops Automotive SMD Power Inductors with an Operating Temperature of up to 150°C
Optimum for powertrain components, focusing on traceability
Shipment of product samples will start in March 2017, and commercial production will start at FUKUSHIMA TAIYO YUDEN CO., LTD. (Date-City, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan) in August 2017.
Vehicles produced recently are equipped with a greater number of electronic control units (ECUs) such as ADAS, which require more power supply circuits. This has resulted in increasing demands for power inductors used in such circuits. In particular, since more ECUs are installed in the engine room, subject to high temperatures, electronic components used in the ECUs must possess high heat and vibration resistance.
TAIYO YUDEN has adopted our optimized material technology and structural design into the power inductor, which achieves a heat resistance of 150°C and a mechanical strength against 30G vibrations. Furthermore, we are promoting visualization of the manufacturing processes to strengthen quality control. As part of this activity, we print a unique Data Matrix Barcode on the product, piece by piece, to trace each unit throughout all manufacturing processes.
TAIYO YUDEN focuses on the product development of SMD power inductors in order to meet market demands, and will continue to expand their line-up to 6, 7, and 12 mm square sizes.
