Vishay Launches New Line of 1008 Inductors: Compact, High-Frequency Devices Provide New Option For Hand-Held Systems
YANKTON, SOUTH DAKOTA - June 18, 1999 - Vishay Dale is adding to the options available to electronic systems designers and purchasers with the release of a new family of high-frequency wirewound inductors in the surface-mount 1008 package.
A drop-in replacement for the industry standard 1008 package, the new IMC-1008 series features 34 components, with inductance values ranging from 3.3 nH to 3,300 nH. For impedance matching, selective filtering, and tuned circuit applications, the new IMC-1008 inductors will save space with a footprint measuring just 2.5 x 2.0 mm with a 1 mm height profile, and thus help reduce the size and weight of mobile phones, pagers, and other hand-held systems.
Precision wound IMC-1008 series inductors feature high self-resonant frequency values and high Q values (QMIN from 25 to 50) at higher frequencies. With maximum DC resistance as low as 60 milliohms with current ratings up to 600 mA, the IMC-1008 series provides reliable performance in a wide range of applications.
"The IMC-1008 series gives our customers and distributors a new and readily available option for this industry accepted footprint," said Mike Husman, Director of Product Marketing.
IMC-1008 inductors are provided in tape and reel form for automated assembly, and are compatible with both vapor phase and infrared reflow soldering methods.
Samples and production quantities of Vishay's IMC-1008 inductors are available now, with lead times of two to four weeks for larger orders.
