AVX Releases New Accu-L® Series Thin Film Chip Inductors for Automotive Signal & Power Applications

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (January 22, 2018) -AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of passive components, interconnects, sensors, and control solutions, has released a new series of thin film multilayer chip inductors especially designed to meet demanding performance specifications in automotive signal and power applications. Qualified to AEC-Q200, the new automotive grade Accu-L® Series inductors exhibit ultra-tight inductance tolerances down to ±0.05nH, in addition to: RF power capabilities, high Q, high self-resonant frequency (SRF), low DC resistance (Rdc), and outstanding high-frequency performance from 450MHz to 2,400MHz. Available in small, ruggedly constructed, low profile 0402 and 0805 chip sizes, the series also delivers exceptional intra-lot and lot-to-lot physical and electrical consistency that makes it ideal for use in automotive signal and power applications that require apex accuracy, including: matching networks and filters in vehicle-to-vehicle communications, infotainment, vehicle location, keyless entry, global positioning, and radar systems.
