TDK has expanded its CLF-NI-D series of power inductors for use in automotive electronics.

The new CLF7045NI-D wirewound SMD power inductors feature high efficiency across wide temperature ranges extending from -55°C to +150°C.

A new bonding process for the terminals enables a solderless structural design featuring improved mechanical strength.

The new inductors are suited for applications in automotive environments such as the power supply circuits of engine control modules (ECM) and ECUs for airbags, ABS and headlights.
