Murata continues to support ongoing engineering progression within the automotive sector with the introduction of the LQW21FT_0H series. These are the world’s smallest inductors with broadband impedance for in-vehicle power-over-coax (PoC) circuits of SerDes-based interfacing. The LQW21FT_0H series is compliant with AEC-Q200 and delivers a combination of both broadband impedance and high-current performance. Thanks to state-of-the-art technologies for both ceramic material and coil structure, Murata can supply these components in a space-saving size format that other manufacturers simply cannot match. They are housed in compact 0805-inch case size, with 2mm x 1.2mm x 1.6mm dimensions.
Murata’s LQW21FT_0H series inductors are extremely well suited to PoC use cases. As well as their 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. The heightened operating temperatures that these inductors can support makes them attractive for automotive implementation (reaching up to 125°C).
