Power inductors feature low profiles down to 0.8mm
Vishay Intertechnology has announced that it has extended its IHHP series of low-profile, high-current power inductors with two devices in the compact 3x3mm 1212 case size. Offering a wide range of inductance values from 0.33 to 10µH and low profiles of 0.8 and 1.0mm, respectively, the Vishay Dale IHHP-1212ZH-01 and IHHP-1212AZ-01 are designed to save space and increase efficiency in portable electronics.
The devices are optimised for DC/DC converters and power supply modules for notebook PCs, tablets and other handheld, battery-powered electronics. The magnetic-alloy power inductors offer low acoustic noise and provide magnetic shielding to prevent interference with nearby components.
The IHHP-1212ZH-01 and IHHP-1212AZ-01 feature maximum DCR down to 23mΩ, high saturation current to 6.5A and a heat rating current up to 6.0A. The devices operate over a temperature range from -55 to +125°C and are packaged in an RoHS-compliant, 100 % lead (Pb)-free shielded construction.
