Vishay Intertechnology Releases New IFSC Family of Low-Profile, High-Current Inductors in 0806, 1008, 1111, and 1515 Case Sizes
Five new devices feature ultra-low profiles down to 1.0 mm, high maximum frequency to 5.0 MHz, and inductance up to 47 µH.
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — April 20, 2011 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today launched a new family of low-profile, high-current inductors in the 0806, 1008, 1111, and 1515 case sizes. The IFSC devices combine ultra-low profiles down to 1.0 mm with a high maximum frequency and a wide range of standard inductance values from 0.47 µH to 47.0 µH.
With a frequency range up to 5.0 MHz, the five IFSC inductors announced today serve as high-performing, space- and power-saving solutions for DC/DC converter applications in end products including LCD displays, hard disk drives, digital video cameras, smart phones, tablets, and PDAs; low-profile, high-current power supplies; and point of load (POL) converters.
The devices offer an inductance range from 0.47 µH to 47.0 µH, a saturation current range from 0.235 A up to 5.5 A, typical DCR from 17 mΩ to 2367 mΩ, and maximum DCR from 22 mΩ to 2840 mΩ.
The new inductors are RoHS-compliant and 100 % lead (Pb)-free. These shielded devices are specified for an operating temperature range of -55°C to +125°C, with high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, mechanical shock, and vibration.
