TDK offers compact high-current chokes for automotive and industrial applications

March 16, 2023

TDK Corporation (TSE:6762) presents the B82559A*A033 series of new shielded EPCOS ERU33 high-current chokes for through-hole mounting. Designed for very high saturation currents from 32 A to 83 A at 100 °C, the six new types cover a range of inductance values from 3.2 µH to 10 µH. DC resistances are as low as 0.85 mΩ or 1.2 mΩ, depending on the type. Thanks to the flat wire winding, the chokes have very compact dimensions of only 33 x 33 x 15 mm. By thermally connecting the flat wire winding to the core, the large ferrite surface can be coupled to a heat sink for effective heat dissipation. In addition to the standard types, customized variants with other inductance values can also be realized.

The RoHS-compatible and AEC-Q200 REV D-qualified inductors are designed for operating temperatures from -40 °C to +150 °C. Typical automotive applications are buck-boost chokes for DC-DC converters (e.g. for 48 V on-board power supplies or differential mode chokes in the input filter of onboard chargers. In industrial electronics, they can be used as storage and output chokes in high-current supplies and PoL supplies.

Achieve Greater Design Flexibility and Reduce Costs with Chiplets

Sponsored by Keysight

Chiplets are a new way to build a system-on-chips (SoCs) to improve yields and reduce costs. It partitions the chip into discrete elements and connects them with a standardized interface, enabling designers to meet performance, efficiency, power, size, and cost challenges in the 5 / 6G, artificial intelligence (AI), and virtual reality (VR) era. This white paper will discuss the shift to chiplet adoption and Keysight EDA's implementation of the communication standard (UCIe) into the Keysight Advanced Design System (ADS).
