CAN FD Class 3-Compatible Common Mode Choke

August 23, 2019 by Paul Shepard

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has introduced the wire-wound common mode choke coil (CMCC) DLW32SH101XF2, which is the world’s first CMCC to support differential-to-common-mode rejection (DCMR) Class 3, fulfilling the IEC62228-3 requirement for use in CAN FD next-generation automotive networks.

In the automotive industry, technologies that control basic automobile behavior are advancing rapidly with the aim of providing safer and more comfortable driving. In keeping with this market demand, faster automotive networks are required for connecting ECUs, sensors, and motors, with the result that conventional CAN, which transmits data at a rate of up to 1Mbps is being replaced with the faster CAN FD.

The new product draws on Murata's CMCC design and manufacturing expertise to deliver the high performance and reliability required for CMCCs used in CAN FD networks while realizing a small size as a result of the company’s unique wire-wound structure.


  • Supports DCMR Class 3, fulfilling the IEC62228-3 requirement for CMCCs used in CAN FD
  • Operating temperature range: -40 to +125ºC
  • AEC-Q200 compliant
  • The industry's smallest size (3.2mm x 2.5mm)

Additional technical information

In automotive networks, in order to ensure stable communication it is essential to implement ongoing measures to reduce noise from the several sources within the vehicle. In transitioning from CAN to the faster CAN FD, more stringent noise-reduction measures are required. Conventional CMCCs for CAN support DCMR Class 1 or, in the case of high-precision products, Class 2.

By minimizing the difference in characteristics between the two coils comprising the CMCC and controlling DCMR degradation, this product successfully supports DCMR (Ssd21, Ssd12) Class 3, which is required for CMCCs used in CAN FD according to IEC62228-3, the CAN specification defined by the IEC. Particularly in the low frequency band in the range of several hundred kilo hertz and higher, the new product delivers the highest level of DCMR.
