RIVERSIDE, Calif., ​September ​6, 2016 - Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today introduced a broad new series of automotive-grade semi-shielded and shielded power inductor components. Bourns offers one of the industry's broadest portfolios of AEC-Q200-qualified products consisting of resistors and magnetics that condition and filter electronic circuits, and circuit protection products designed specifically for automotive applications. AEC-Q200 is a global automotive standard for passive components to ensure temperature, pressure resistance and safety consistency. Along with the entire line of Bourns' automotive-grade components, the nine new inductor series have been tested and qualified to the AEC-Q200 specification, and are manufactured in facilities that are fully certified to TS 16949.

"Based on specific requests from our automotive market customers for semi-shielded inductors, the products were developed and tested, and are being manufactured according to strict AEC-Q guidelines in TS certified factories,” said Guido Zehnder, product line manager at Bourns, Inc. "Automotive designers can be assured of a component that has passed very clear defined specifications with dedicated controls.”

Bourns released six new AEC-Q200-qualified semi-shielded power inductor series: SRN2010TA, SRN3012TA, SRN3015TA, SRN4012TA, SRN6045TA and SRN8040TA and three AEC-Q200-qualified shielded power inductor series: SRR1050A, SRU1063A and SRU8045A. These inductors have been designed to provide effective magnetic shielding with low radiation, feature extended temperature range (-40 to +125 °C) operation and offer cost-effective solutions compared to similarly-sized conventional ferrite shield inductors. These features make them ideal for applications where low noise operating environments are essential such as driver assistant devices, information/entertainment systems, lighting as well as DC/DC converters and power supplies.

Pricing and Availability
Bourns' new series of semi-shielded and shielded power inductor components are available now and are RoHS compliant*. As a pricing reference, the semi-shielded Model SRN3012TA is priced at $0.12 each in 10,000 piece quantities and the shielded Model SRR1050A is priced at $0.40 each in 10,000 piece quantities.
