Vishay Extends IHLP® Family of Low-Profile, High-Current Inductors With New Device in the 1212 Case Size

New Inductor Offers Compact 3.0-mm by 3.6-mm Footprint With 2.0-mm Profile, High Maximum Frequency to 1 MHz, and Low DCR Down to 9.5 Milliohms Typical

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2010) -  Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today launched a new IHLP® low-profile, high-current inductor in the 1212 case size. Vishay's smallest IHLP device to date, the compact IHLP-1212BZ-11 offers a 3.0-mm by 3.6-mm footprint and ultra-low 2.0-mm profile, with a high maximum frequency and standard inductance values from 0.22 through 1.5 microhenries.

With a frequency range of up to 1.0 MHz, the new IHLP-1212BZ-11 serves as a high-performing, space- and power-saving solution for voltage regulator module (VRM) and dc-to-dc converter applications in end products including next-generation mobile devices, notebooks, desktop computers, 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 IHLP-1212BZ-11 offers an inductance range from 0.22 to 1.5 microhenries, a saturation current range from 4.0 A up to 7.5 A, typical DCR from 9.5 to 27.0 milliohms, and maximum DCR from 11.4 to 32.0 milliohms.

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 low levels, the new device is specified for an operating temperature range of - 55 to + 125 deg. C, with high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, mechanical shock, and vibration.

Samples and production quantities of the new inductor are available now, with lead times of 8 to 10 weeks for large orders. Follow Vishay's IHLP inductors at
