Vishay’s New Toroidal High-Temperature Inductor Offers Industry’s Lowest Inductance Down to 0.47 μH and Lowest DCR With Vertical- and Horizontal-Mount Options
High-Current Devices Feature Industry’s Highest Rated Current up to 36 A and Highest Saturation Current up to 50 A
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — Nov. 14, 2007 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the first size in a series of new toroidal, high-current, high-temperature inductor that offers the industry’s highest rated and saturation current, and the industry’s lowest DCR.
With a high operating temperature rating to +200 °C and a toroidal design to reduce EMI, the new TJ5-HT inductor is optimized for switching power supplies, EMI/RFI filtering, and output chokes in automotive, industrial, and deep well drilling products.
The low-cost device offers designers horizontal and vertical mount options to optimize the PCB layout. With 11 standard inductance values to choose from, the inductor features a maximum DCR range from 0.29 Ω down to 0.0024 Ω when vertically mounted, and 0.3 Ω to 0.003 Ω when horizontally mounted.
The TJ5-HT offers a wide inductance range from 470 μH down to 0.47 μH, with a high rated current from 2.8 A up to 36 A, and saturation current from 1.5 A up to 50 A. The inductor provides low magnetic radiation and is RoHS-compliant. Custom values and current ratings are available upon request.
Samples and production quantities of the new TJ5-HT inductor are available now. Lead time for production quantities is 10 weeks.
