Vishay's New Surface-Mount, Wirewound Inductor With Shielded Construction Offers Wide Inductance Range of 1.0 μH to 1000 μH
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — July 20, 2005 μ Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of a new surface-mount, wirewound, shielded inductor that provides high reliability and enables easy surface-mounting in close proximity to other components on the assembly board.
The new Vishay Dale ISC-1008 is intended for use in medium- to low-frequency resonant circuits for higher-current applications in notebooks, PCs, flash memory devices, converters, and other electronic systems. In addition to shielding that enables manufacture of more compact end products, the new inductor features excellent solderability and resistance to soldering heat. As a result, designers can integrate greater functionality on available board space without compromising the overall performance and reliability of the end product.
A wide range of inductance ratings is available for the ISC-1008 inductor, with values (at 100 KHz) ranging from 1.0 μH to 1000 μH. Standard tolerance is ±20% over this range, and rated current ranges from 1000 mA to 30 mA.
The ISC-1008 occupies dimensions of 0.142 in. by 0.142 in. [3.6 mm by 3.6 mm] with a height of 0.098 in. [2.50 mm]. The inductor, which features a ferrite construction with a magnetic shield, is rated for an operating temperature range of 40 °C to +85 °C and is both 100% lead (Pb)-free and RoHS-compliant. It is suitable for reflow soldering and provided in tape-and-reel packaging to enable automatic handling.
Samples and production quantities of the new ISC-1008 wirewound, shielded inductor are available now, with a lead time of eight weeks for larger orders.
