Heilbronn, Germany Vishay Intertechnology has extended its IHLP family of low-profile, high-current inductors with a new device that claims the lowest DCR/µH available in a compact 10.2 x 11.5-mm package with a low 4.0 mm height profile. With industry-leading specifications including DCR values down to 0.65 mOhm at 0.19 µH, the Vishay Dale IHLP-4040DZ-05 is a high-performance, space- and power-saving solution for dc-to-dc converter applications in end products including next-generation mobile devices; notebooks, desktop computers and servers; low-profile, high-current power supplies and point of load (POL) converters; distributed power systems; and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The power inductor handles high transient current spikes without saturation and operates over a frequency range up to 5 MHz. Saturation current and typical DCR values range from 40 A to 60 A and from 1.55 mOhms to 0.65 mOhm, respectively, over an inductance range of 0.56 µH to 0.19 µH. Inductance tolerance for the new device is ±20%. The RoHS-compliant device is rated for an operating temperature range of -55 °C to +125 °C. It features a 100% lead (Pb)-free, shielded, composite construction that reduces buzz noise to ultra-low levels. Samples and production quantities are available now, with a lead time of eight weeks for larger orders. Vishay Semiconductor GmbH , Heilbronn, Germany. www.vishay.com.
