New Vishay Intertechnology Automotive-Grade Low-Profile, High-Current Inductor Offers Continuous High-Temperature Operation to +180 Deg. C

Latest IHLP® Device Features Wide Inductance Range From 0.47 to 22 Microhenries in 2525 Case Size

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwired - Apr 24, 2014) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new automotive-grade IHLP® low-profile, high-current inductor with an industry-high continuous operating temperature range to +180 °C. Offered in the 2525 case size with a low profile of 3.0 mm, the new Vishay Dale IHLP-2525CZ-8A provides a wide range of inductance values from 0.47 to 22 microhenries.

With a frequency range up to 1 MHz, the AEC-Q200-qualified device released today serves as a high-performing, space- and power-saving solution for voltage regulator modules (VRM) and DC/DC converters in high-temperature automotive applications. End products include engine and transmission control units, diesel injection drivers, entertainment and navigation systems, noise suppression for motors, windshield wipers, HID and LED lighting, heating and ventilation blowers, and power seats and mirrors.

The IHLP-2525CZ-8A handles high transient current spikes without hard saturation. Packaged in a 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 +180 °C, with high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, mechanical shock, and vibration. The inductor is RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green.

Samples and production quantities of the new inductor are available now, with lead times of 10 weeks for large orders.
