Malvern, Pa. Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has released four low-profile, high-current inductors that feature high maximum frequencies and low inductance values. The IHLP inductors also tout the lowest direct resistance current (DCR)/uH for their respective package sizes. They may be used for voltage regulator module (VRM) and dc-to-dc applications such as point-of-load converters, distributed power systems, and voltage regulation for FPGAs.
The IHLP-1616AB-11 and IHLP-1616BZ-11 inductors offer a maximum frequency of 1.0 MHz, while the IHLP-1616AB-01 and IHLP-1616BZ-01 feature a maximum frequency of 5.0 MHz. The inductance range for these inductors is 0.047 uH to 4.7 uH.
All four devices feature compact dimensions of 0.160 in. x 0.175 in. (4.06 x4.45 mm) in a 1616 footprint. The IHLP-1616AB-01 and IHLP-1616AB-11 inductors offer very low height profiles of 0.047 in. (1.2 mm), and the IHLP-1616BZ-01 and IHLP-1616BZ-11 inductors offer low profiles of 0.079 in. (2.0 mm).
The inductors handle high transient current spikes without hard saturation. The shielded, composite construction is RoHS-compliant and 100% lead-free. The new 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.
Target end products include next-generation mobile devices, notebook and desktop computers, servers, graphic cards, portable gaming devices, personal navigation systems, personal multimedia devices, and automotive navigation and multimedia entertainment systems. Other applications include medium- to high current noise filtering and dc-to-dc boost converters for white LED driver circuits.
Pricing: For U.S. delivery only in quantities of 10,000 is $0.56 each.
Availability: Samples and production quantities are available now, with lead times of six to eight weeks for large orders.
Datasheets: IHLP-1616AB-11, IHLP-1616BZ-11, IHLP-1616AB-01, and IHLP-1616BZ-01.
