Automotive Inductors Handle 17.4A in a Compact Package

May 08, 2017 by Jeff Shepard

Coilcraft's new SRT8045 Series of magnetically-shielded power inductors offer superior performance and a smaller package than previous-generation products. Measuring just 8.0 x 8.4 x 4.5 mm, the highly cost-effective SRT8045 has saturation current ratings up to 17.4Amps and dc resistance as low as 7.7mΩ, allowing users to dramatically reduce inductor size while maintaining excellent performance.

SRT8045 Series inductors are offered in five inductance values ranging from 1.4- to 22-µH. They are qualified to AEC-Q200 Grade 1 standards (-40 to +125 degrees C ambient), making them suitable for automotive and other harsh-environment applications.

They feature RoHS compliant, matte tin over nickel over phos bronze terminations and offer a maximum reflow temperature of 260 degrees C. COTS Plus tin-silver-copper and tin-lead terminations are also available. As with all Coilcraft parts, free evaluation samples of the SRT8045 Series are available online
