Bourns® Model CWP3230A Series features high current, inductance and impedance in a compact form factor

RIVERSIDE, Calif., June 6, 2024 - Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components for power, protection, and sensing solutions, today introduced its Model CWP3230A Series chip inductors. These AEC-Q200 compliant automotive grade inductors feature high current, inductance and impedance in a compact form factor. The new series’ high impedance and current capabilities make them ideal for applications using coaxial cable, where both power and video signals are simultaneously transmitted. Bourns® Model CWP3230A Series enables designers to decrease the number of inductors and chip beads in circuit, to save space and reduce development costs.

The CWP3230A Series is designed with a ferrite powder core, and bifilar and trifilar windings to achieve a higher saturation current and heating current level in a small size. The series has an inductance range of 2.2 - 47 µH and an operating temperature range of -50 to +150 °C. These features are required in a growing variety of space-constrained ADAS applications that must also meet lower power consumption goals such as in Power over Coax (PoC) vehicle camera modules.

The Bourns® Model CWP3230A Chip Inductor Series is available now and is RoHS* compliant and halogen free**. For more detailed product information, please see:
