TDK Corporation announced a series of chokes for automotive Ethernet that features, according to the company, the world’s best common-mode noise suppression. Measuring in with a footprint of 4.5-mm x 3.2-mm and an insertion height of just 2.8-mm, the miniaturized ACT45L Series is said to be the world’s smallest common-mode choke for automotive Ethernet and fulfills the standard’s stiffest requirements. The chokes are designed to be manufactured using fully automated processes that include a high-precision autowinding process and the bonding of ferrite cores with a highly temperature- and moisture-resistant adhesive. The result is a new series of automotive components qualified to AEC-Q200 with desirable reliability and consistent quality.
