New Series of Wirewound, Molded, Surface-Mount Inductors Extends Vishay Offerings With Drop-In Replacements for Industry-Standard 2220 Devices
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA - September 13, 2002 - Vishay Intertechnology, Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of a new series of wirewound, molded, surface-mount inductors designed to eliminate electro-magnetic interference in power lines for personal computers, telecommunications, appliances, and other electronic devices.
Measuring 0.221 in. by 0.197 in. [5.6 mm by 5.0 mm] with a 0.197-in. [5.0-mm] height height profile, inductors in the Vishay Dale IMC-2220 series serve as a drop-in replacements for industry-standard 2220 (or metric 5650) devices.
Forty-nine inductance values ranging from 1.0 μH up to 10000 μH are available with tolerances of ±10% and ±5%. Intended for medium- to low-frequency resonant circuits, the new devices are rated for currents from 25 mA to 1.8 A.
The series is rated for an operating temperature range of -25°C to +85°C and a storage temperature of -40°C to +100°C. The IMC-2220 devices' molded construction provides superior strength and moisture resistance and features environmentally friendly terminations that are 100% lead (Pb)-free and compatible with both vapor-phase infrared and wave soldering methods. The new inductors are available in tape-and-reel packaging (400 pieces per reel) for automatic handling.
Samples and production quantities are available now. Lead time for production quantities is eight to 10 weeks.
