New Vishay Intertechnology Automotive-Grade Low-Profile, High-Current Inductor Is Industry’s First With High-Temperature Operation to +180 °C
Latest IHLP® Device Features Wide Inductance Range From 0.22 µH to 33 µH in 3232 Case Size With Low 4.0 mm Profile
MALVERN, Pa. — Nov. 10, 2015 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new automotive-grade IHLP® low-profile, high-current inductor in the 3232 case size that is the industry’s first to feature high continuous operating temperatures to +180 °C. Offering a low 4.0 mm profile, the Vishay Dale IHLP-3232DZ-8A provides a wide range of inductance values from 0.22 µH to 33 µH.
With a frequency range up to 2 MHz, the device released today exceeds AEC-Q200 requirements to provide a high-performing, space- and power-saving solution for DC/DC converters and high-current noise filters in high-temperature automotive systems. Applications include engine and transmission control units, diesel injection drivers, noise suppression for motors, windshield wipers, HID and LED lighting, and heating and ventilation blowers.
The IHLP-3232DZ-8A handles high transient current spikes without hard saturation. Packaged in a 100 % lead (Pb)-free shielded, composite construction that reduces buzz noise to ultra-low levels, the device is specified for an operating temperature range of -55 °C to +180 °C, with high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, mechanical shock, and vibration. The inductor is RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green.
