Vishay Intertechnology Introduces Three New Surface-Mount, Common-Mode Chokes With High Rated Currents to 8.0 A and Low DC Resistance Down to 0.006 Ohms

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2011) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of three new surface-mount, common-mode chokes offering low DC resistance, high current-handling capability, and high stability for DC power lines.

The new ICM-2824, ICM-3528, and ICM-4743 common-mode chokes from Vishay Dale are designed to provide noise suppression for power line applications in local area networks (LAN), personal computers, CD-ROM drives, telephones, and electronic games.

The devices released today feature low maximum DC resistance from just 0.006 ohms up to 0.015 ohms at rated currents from 8.0 A down to 4.0 A, and common-mode impedance ranging from 300 to 1500 ohms at 100 MHz. All three chokes provide a maximum rated voltage of 80 VDC, insulation resistance of 10 megohms, and an operating temperature range of - 25 °C to + 85 °C.

Offered in lead- (Pb) free, surface-mount packages with treated base terminals, the devices allow for easy mounting to the PCB and feature a paired wire coil for high stability. The ICM-2824, ICM-3528, and ICM-4743 measure 7 mm by 6 mm, 9 mm by 7 mm, and 12 mm by 11 mm, respectively, with maximum heights of 4 mm, 5 mm, and 6.3 mm.

Samples and production quantities of the new common-mode chokes are available now. Lead time for production quantities is 10 weeks. Follow Vishay common mode chokes at http://twitter.com/vishayindust.
