The DFE series has the industry’s highest levels of electrostatic discharge (ESD) surge voltage protection and AEC-Q200 compliance for automotive designs.
The DFE2HCAH series measures 2.5 x 2.0 x 1.2 mm and provides 1 kV protection, and the DFE2MCAH series measures 2.0 x 1.6 x 1.2 mm and is rated at 500 V ESD protection. Both series are fabricated using Murata’s metal alloy material and accommodate the automotive operating temperature range from -40°C to +150°C.
In addition to the high ESD protection features the compact dimensions of the new power inductors ensure the minimum of PCB space is required, aiding designers to accommodate today’s space-constrained applications. Inductance values available are in the range of 0.33 to 2.2 µH with a value-dependent maximum current rating of 5.8 A.
