In recent years, automobile electrification has evolved following the progress of automated driving such as ADAS*1, and various electronic devices such as vehicle-mounted cameras, radars, LiDAR*2, and ECU*3 have been equipped on automobiles. However, since components are often confined to a limited space, they are required to be miniaturized and must be able to withstand high temperatures.

To operate electronic devices properly, it is required that power is supplied stably to each function. To provide stable power supply, it is required to avoid low frequency noise that result from DC-DC converters from entering the signal line, and high inductance inductor components are required to suppress noise.

Responding to these application requirements, Murata has designed this product as a low frequency noise suppression component which is a smaller model compared to conventional models at a size of 0603 inch (1608 mm), and is capable of withstanding high temperatures (150°C) with a high inductance (6.8 - 47 uH).
By combining this product with our chip ferrite bead “BLM series,” which is optimal for high frequency noise suppression, it is capable of eliminating a broader range of noise.
