An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release PLT10HH series suppresses electric vehicle noise from Murata Electronics, which we summarised at the time by saying "The PLT10HH series is suitable for suppressing noise from the electrical accessories used in electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles and other low-fuel-consumption vehicles. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Automotive Mosfets for heavy-load applications from International Rectifier: "International Rectifier has expanded its family of automotive DirectFET2 power Mosfets that deliver good power density, dual-sided cooling and minimal parasitic inductance and resistance.".

In October 2010, we covered the news from Diodes Incorporated - take a look at Point-of-load converters include Mosfet and Diofet which says: "Diodes Incorporated has expanded its Diofet product portfolio with the introduction of two dual-channel devices that can be used as point-of-load converters in consumer and industrial applications.".

Take a look also at the news release from Schurter, DKFP chokes can be used in line filter circuits, as well as Power Mosfets for automotive applications from International Rectifier, and Power inductors suit DC-DC converter applications from Taiyo Yuden.
