Low profile power inductors for advanced driver assistance systems

TDK Corporation has announced the MLD2012 series of multilayer inductors for automotive power circuits. The new components that are based on a ferrite core are available in a compact IEC 2012 (EIA 0805) package with a footprint of 2.0x1.25mm and an insertion height of just 0.5mm. The power inductors, which are qualified to AEC-Q200, offer inductance values ranging from 0.47-47µH and rated currents from 750-1,200mA. 

Thanks to their electrical performance and broad operating temperature range of -40 °C to +125 °C, the low profile components are suitable for automotive applications, especially in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), where they help enable even smaller cameras, for example.

The MLD2012 inductors are also suitable for In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) and telematics systems as well as in the various automotive ECUs and modules. Mass production of the MLD2012 started in March 2018.

Like the existing MLD2016 series of power inductors, the new MLD2012 series features a multilayer structure in order to achieve low leakage flux, thus expanding TDK's lineup of ferrite core power inductors for an increasing range of automotive applications.
