Vishay extends IHLP family of low-profile, high-current inductors
Vishay Intertechnology has announced a new IHLP low-profile, high-current inductor in the 8787 case size with industry-high rated current from 9.7 A to 180 A and a high operating temperature to + 155 °C.
The IHLP-8787MZ-5A offers high efficiency with maximum DCR from 0.17 mΩ to 28.30 mΩ and a wide range of inductance values from 0.22 µH to 100 µH.
With a frequency range up to 1 MHz, the device serves as a high-performing, space- and power-saving solution for voltage regulator module (VRM) and DC/DC converter applications.
With AEC-Q200 qualification pending and expected for January 2013, the IHLP-8787MZ-5A is designed for high-temperature automotive applications, including engine and transmission control units, diesel injection drivers, entertainment and navigation systems, noise suppression for motors, and power seats and mirrors.
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 device is specified for an operating temperature range of -55 °C to + 155 °C, with high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, mechanical shock, and vibration.
