Vishay Releases Industry's First IHLP® Low-Profile, High-Current Inductor in 3232 Case Size With 4.0 mm Profile

IHLP-3232DZ-11 Features Inductance Values From 0.22 to 47.0 Microhenries and Maximum DCR Down to 1.35 Milliohms

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - March 30, 2011) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today launched a new IHLP® low-profile, high-current inductor that is the industry's first such device in the 3232 case size. Featuring an 8.3 mm by 8.8 mm footprint and ultra-low 4.0 mm profile, the IHLP-3232DZ-11 offers high efficiency with maximum DCR down to 1.35 milliohms and a wide range of standard inductance values from 0.22 through 47.0 microhenries.

With a DC/DC converter frequency range up to 1.0 MHz, the new IHLP-3232DZ-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, servers, graphic cards, portable gaming systems, personal navigation systems, personal multimedia devices, and automotive systems; low-profile, high-current power supplies and point of load (POL) converters; distributed power systems; field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs); and high-current filters.

The IHLP-3232DZ-11offers an inductance range from 0.22 to 47.0 microhenries, a saturation current range from 2.6 A up to 22.0 A, a heat rating current range from 3.0 A to 34.0 A, and maximum DCR from 1.35 to 252 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 ultra-low levels, the new device is 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 inductor are available now, with lead times of six to eight weeks for large orders. Follow Vishay's IHLP inductors at http://twitter.com/vishayindust
