SMT Inductors Take On Demanding Automotive Applications

TT Electronics’ HM73E-10 series SMT miniature power inductors target high reliability applications in the automotive industry. The inductors are suitable for high efficiency dc/dc applications where size is critical and their AEC-Q200 certification ensures performance and reliability levels that automotive applications demand. Six models are available with current ratings from 15A to 65A and they operate over a temperature range of -50°C to +155°C.  At 100 kHz, inductance ratings range from 3.76 uH to 0.19 uH.  All of the inductors in the series measure 11.5 mm x 10.6 mm with a height of 5.9 mm.
