TDK-EPC Corp. has presented a new series of Epcos SMT inductors that it claims to have the highest reliability. The components of the new R series offer 30 percent higher saturation current capability than standard series types. The company says the saturation current is between 1.05A and 38A at inductance values from 0.82�H to 1000�H. The DC resistance is between 5.0m? and 1.35?.

With a wide permissible operating temperature range from -55 to 150�C, the Epcos B82477R series claim to satisfy the rigorous requirements of automotive electronics and are qualified for AEC-Q200. Designed with a baseplate, the inductors offer very high mechanical stability. These components have a footprint of 12.5x12.5mm2 and a maximum insertion height of 8.5mm. Due to their magnetic shielding, they can be placed in direct proximity to other components on the circuit board. These high-performance inductors are RoHS-compatible and suitable for lead-free soldering to JEDEC J-STD020C standards.
