Miniaturised, lightweight and ultrahigh-efficiency inductors are finding their way from smartphones and laptops into more advanced applications in telecommunications, industrial and vehicle sectors. With these innovations driving the global inductor market to a projected 5.5 per cent compound annual growth rate to US$3.98 billion through 2020, the race is on towards getting the lion’s share – and out to lead the pack is Chilisin Electronics.
Chilisin combines a comprehensive portfolio of power, electromagnetic interference and radio frequency inductors with technical and value-added services that have earned the trust of an equally distinguished clientele. Ranking first among inductor manufacturers in China and fourth globally, the Hsinchu-headquartered company recorded a year-on-year growth of nearly 21 per cent last year.
“Chilisin is not a component supplier; it is a one-stop total solutions provider,” says Pierre Chen, chairman of global passive components expert Yageo, under which Chilisin focuses on radio frequency, electromagnetic interference and power inductors.
“This, in addition to our vertically integrated model and close collaboration with integrated circuit [IC] design houses, is an edge that we hope to bring as we expand into the automotive segment and other industries.”
The company’s power inductors with magnetic shields, for instance, are developed to suit the large current and low direct current resistance requirements that are specific to automotive power supply systems.
The SLFA series, in particular, is designed without a base to reduce costs while performing better than traditional counterparts.
With its own inductor core powder-making plant complementing a growing number of factories and offices across China, Asia, Europe and the United States, Chilisin is able to customise product specifications and features, while ensuring prompt delivery and maximum cost efficiency.
“We recognise Asia-Pacific as the driving force behind the estimated growth of the global inductor market,” Chen says. “We look forward to working with more brilliant IC solution providers and technology partners – and together make way for more game-changing innovations.”
