Low-profile power inductor for advanced driver assistance systems

[---Image_alt---] Teaser_LG_en
  • Low-profile IEC 2012 package with an insertion height of just 0.5 mm
  • Low leakage flux
  • Qualified to AEC-Q200

TDK Corporation announces the MLD2012 multilayer inductor for automotive power circuits. The new component that is based on a ferrite core is available in a compact IEC 2012 (EIA 0805) package with a footprint of 2.0 mm x 1.25 mm and an insertion height of just 0.5 mm. The power inductor, which is qualified to AEC-Q200, offers an inductance value of 0.47 µH and a rated current of 1200 mA. Thanks to its excellent electrical performance and broad operating temperature range of -40 °C to +125 °C, the low-profile component is suitable for automotive applications, especially in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), where it helps enable even smaller cameras, for example. The MLD2012 inductor is 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 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.
