EPCOSrugged SMT power inductors feature a base plate with injection-molded termination clips. Their design increases mechanical stability and improves temperature distribution during the solder process. Lands with a nickel barrier-layer coating satisfy the tougher demands required for use in automotive electronics. The AEC-Q2000-qualified series is composed of four shielded (P series) and two unshielded (M series) types. Components are available with inductances from 0.82 to 1000 µH and have a current handling capability of up to 15 A. All types are designed for operating temperatures up to 150°C (302°F) and pass a vibration test of 10 g for 72 h. The inductors also satisfy the requirements of the handling drop test to ISO 16750-3.
