AEC-Q200-Compliant Inductors for In-Vehicle PoC Systems



To foster innovation within the automotive market, Murata has announced the availability of its LQW21FT_0H series. These are the world’s smallest inductors with broadband impedance for in-vehicle power-over-coax (PoC) circuit of SerDes-based interfacing. The product line is AEC-Q200 compliant and delivers a combination of broadband impedance and high-current performance. They are available in a compact 0805 inch case size with 2mm x 1.2mm x 1.6mm dimensions.

The LQW21FT_0H series is ideal for PoC functions. In addition to elevated broadband impedance levels, they exhibit superior saturation properties. Inductance values from 0.47 µH to 2 µH can be specified, with respective current ratings of 1 A and 0.45 A. Further, heightened operating temperatures make them well-suited for automotive applications up to 125°C. 

“By leveraging our proprietary ceramic material and coil structure, Murata delivers these components in a miniatured format that is unmatched by other manufacturers. The end-result is an advanced solution that enables engineers to streamline their designs and meet emerging market demands. We are proud of our contribution to help realize the transition towards safe, autonomous driving,” Jonathan Davis, Director, Mobility Business Development Team.
