New Power Inductors Feature Powdered Metal Cores for High Saturation Currents to 5.8 A

June15_VishayVishay Intertechnology, Inc. has introduced a new series of low-profile, high-current power inductors featuring powdered iron cores for high saturation current up to 5.8 A. Lowering costs and saving board space in computer, consumer, and telecom applications, Vishay Dale IHHP series devices are offered in the miniature 2.0 mm by 1.6 mm 0806 and 2.5 mm by 2.0 mm 1008 case sizes, each available with low profiles of 1.0 mm and 1.2 mm.

With their high-current performance and small size, the devices released are optimized for DC/DC converters and power supply modules in notebook PCs, mobile phones, hard disk drives, SSDs, DVCs and DSCs. The magnetic-alloy power inductors offer low acoustic noise and provide magnetic shielding to prevent interference with nearby components.

The IHHP-0806AZ-01, IHHP-0806AB-01, IHHP-1008AZ-01, and IHHP-1008AB-01 feature high efficiency with maximum DCR down to 15 mΩ and a wide range of inductance values from 0.22 µH to 10 µH. The devices provide a heat rating current up to 5.3 A and operate over a temperature range from -55°C to 125°C. The devices are packaged in an RoHS-compliant, 100 percent lead (Pb)-free shielded construction.

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