Vishay Releases Industry’s First Winged Low-Profile, High-Current Inductor with Maximum Frequency to 5 MHz and DCR Down to 0.8 mΩ Typical
For Cut-Out PCBs, New Inductor Offers Low Profile of 1.2 mm for Both Sides of the Board
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — Jan. 28, 2009 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the industry’s first winged low-profile, high-current inductor. Designed to be placed on a cut-out PCB, the IHLW-5050CE-01 offers designers a high-current solution using a larger part, without exceeding a profile of 1.2 mm on either side of the PC board.
With a frequency range up to 5 MHz, the new IHLP® inductor serves as a high-performing, space- and power-saving solution for voltage regulator module (VRM) and dc-to-dc converter applications in end products including next-generation mobile devices; notebooks, desktop computers, servers, graphic cards, portable gaming devices, personal navigation systems, personal multimedia devices, and automotive systems; low-profile, high-current power supplies and point of load (POL) converters; distributed power systems; and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
The IHLW-5050CE-01 offers an inductance range from 0.10 μH to 10 μH, a saturation current range from 14.0 A up to 84 A, typical DCR from 0.8 mΩ to 30.4 mΩ, and maximum DCR from 0.96 mΩ to 34.0 mΩ.
The new inductor handles high transient current spikes without hard saturation. Packaged in an RoHS-compliant, 100 % lead (Pb)-free shielded, composite construction that reduces buzz noise to ultra-low levels, the new device is specified for an operating temperature range of 55 °C to +125 °C, with high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, mechanical shock, and vibration.
Samples and production quantities of the new inductor are available now, with lead times of 10 to 12 weeks for large orders.
