Reduced risk of open and short circuits by integrating internal and external electrodes
High power efficiency achieved by employing low-loss ferrite and low DC resistance
The use of magnetic flux offset structure reduces electromagnetic interference
TDK Corporation (TSE: 6762) has developed the new HPL505032F1 power inductor for automotive circuits. By providing high current with low inductance for the power supply circuits in the central processing unit and graphics processing unit, the inductor enables level 5 ADAS applications for cameras, such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
The new product uses a fully self-developed high BS material and a low RDC manufactured high penetration, low loss ferrite low resistance frame to achieve high power efficiency. The current rating of this product is 1.5 times that of TDK's existing product (HPL505028), and it can accommodate currents as high as 40A to 50A. The proprietary structural design produces a magnetic flux cancellation effect that contributes to noise control, while the frame integrating internal and external electrodes also reduces the risk of open and short circuits, ensuring high reliability.
As cars become more automated, the demand for high-speed, high-capacity cameras in ADAS is increasing. Cameras are an essential component of ADAS-enabled cars, ensuring that everything in the vehicle is in line and that no dangerous situations are occurring. TDK's ADAS system product line includes a range of automotive inductors for these applications. Volume production of these new inductors will begin in July 2021.
