Vishay Introduces Streaming Video Product Demonstration of IHLP® Low-Profile, High-Current Inductors on Web Site

Video Shows Superior Performance of IHLP Inductors at High Rated Current Levels

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - January 11, 2010) - To assist customers in understanding the advantages of using IHLP® low-profile, high-current inductors in their applications, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that it has added a new streaming video product demonstration to its Web site (

Vishay's IHLP inductors are designed to handle high transient current spikes without hard saturation. The new four-minute video features a saturation current performance test that highlights the superior performance of IHLP devices at rated currents of 5 A and 25 A.

The demonstration shows that the hard saturation of other technologies results in a dramatic fall-off in inductance down to almost nothing when current is raised. The soft saturation of IHLP devices, however, allows inductance to roll off slowly.

By keeping inductance as stable as possible, the IHLP devices are optimized 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).
