Low-profile power inductors provide powdered iron cores
Featuring powdered iron cores for high saturation current up to 5.8A, a series of low-profile, high-current power inductors have been announced by Vishay Intertechnology. Lowering costs and saving board space in computer, consumer and telecomms applications, the IHHP series devices are offered in the miniature 2.0x1.6mm 0806 and 2.5x2.0mm 1008 case sizes, each available with low profiles of 1.0 and 1.2mm.
With their high-current performance and small size, the devices are optimised 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 15mΩ and a wide range of inductance values from 0.22 to 10µH. The devices provide a heat rating current up to 5.3A and operate over a temperature range from -55 to +125°C. The devices are packaged in an RoHS-compliant, 100% lead (Pb)-free shielded construction.
Samples and production quantities of the new inductors are available now, with lead times of 8-10 weeks for large orders.
