Vishay Intertechnology Releases New IFSC Family of Low-Profile, High-Current Inductors in 0806, 1008, 1111, and 1515 Case Sizes

Five New Devices Feature Ultra-Low Profiles Down to 1.0 mm, High Maximum Frequency to 5.0 MHz, and Inductance Up to 47 Microhenries

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - Apr 20, 2011) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today launched a new family of low-profile, high-current inductors in the 0806, 1008, 1111, and 1515 case sizes. The IFSC devices combine ultra-low profiles down to 1.0 mm with a high maximum frequency and a wide range of standard inductance values from 0.47 to 47.0 microhenries.

With a frequency range up to 5.0 MHz, the five IFSC inductors announced today serve as high-performing, space- and power-saving solutions for DC/DC converter applications in end products including LCD displays, hard disk drives, digital video cameras, smart phones, tablets, and PDAs; low-profile, high-current power supplies; and point of load (POL) converters.

The devices offer an inductance range from 0.47 to 47.0 microhenries, a saturation current range from 0.235 A up to 5.5 A, typical DCR from 17 to 2367 milliohms, and maximum DCR from 22 to 2840 milliohms.

The new inductors are RoHS-compliant and 100 % lead (Pb)-free. These shielded devices are specified for an operating temperature range of -55 °C to +125 °C, with high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, mechanical shock, and vibration.

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