Vishay Releases Industry-First IHLP High-Current Inductor in 3232 Case With 4 mm Profile
News Release from:
30 March 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 mΩ and a wide range of standard inductance values from 0.22 µH through 47.0 µH.
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 µH to 47.0 µH, 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 mΩ to 252 mΩ.
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.
