The MPLCV is the first SMD power inductor series that is AEC-Q200 qualified. Case sizes of 7.9x6.7mm and 11.5x10mm are available today with inductance values of 4.7 up to 47μH and rated currents of 2.1 up to 7.1A. The initial series release was made with 6 core values which are very competitive and specified for a 155°C maximum operating temperature. KEMET´s technical capabilities are linked with the materials used for these components. There has been much progress made to reduce AC losses and increase permeability which has lead to smaller footprints and improved behaviour at higher frequencies. MPLCV series inductors are intended to be used in ECUs as Pi filters or for output inductance in DC-DC converters, making them ideal for LED lighting, air conditioning, power steering and any other power application at or below 48V. More series will be released in 2019 to increase the choice of case sizes, rated current and saturation capabilities.
