Vishay – New low-profile high-current inductor in a 2020 case (IHLP-2020CZ)Aug 28 2009 - Passives [More Passives Articles]
A new low-profile high-current inductor in a 2020 case has been introduced by Vishay. The compact IHLP-2020CZ-01 offers a 5.18mm by 5.49mm footprint and ultra-low 3mm profile, with a high maximum frequency and standard inductance values from 0.10uH to 15uH.
With a frequency range up to 5MHz, the inductors serve as a high-performing, space- and power-saving solution for voltage regulator module (VRM) and DC-DC converter applications in end products such as next-generation mobile devices; notebooks, desktop computers, servers, graphic cards, portable gaming devices, personal navigation systems, personal multimedia devices, and automotive systems; low-profile, high-current power supplies and point of load (POL) converters; distributed power systems; and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
The inductor has a saturation current range from 2.5A to 27A, typical DCR from 3mohm to 252mohm, and maximum DCR from 3.16mohm to 265mohm.
The device 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 -55C to +125C, and offers high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, mechanical shock, and vibration, says the company.More news from Vishay
