Vishay Intertechnology Space-Saving IHLP® Inductor Offers High Temperature Performance for Automotive Applications

Press release date: March 9, 2017

AEC-Q200-Qualified Device Features Operating Temperature to +155 °C in 1616 Case Size With Low 2 mm Profile

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new AEC-Q200-qualified IHLP® low profile, high current inductor in the 1616 case size that combines a high operating temperature to +155 °C with a low profile of 2 mm to save space in automotive applications.

The Vishay Dale IHLP-1616BZ-5A is optimized for energy storage in DC/DC converters up to 2 MHz. It also provides excellent attenuation of noise in high current filtering applications up to the SRF of the inductor. With a continuous operating temperature of +155 °C, it can be used in under-the-hood applications including engine control units for noise suppression, filtering and DC/DC conversion, LED lighting, radar, LIDAR, optical and other sensors, along with entertainment and navigation systems.

The device released today features high efficiency with typical DCR from 4.0 mΩ to 102.0 mΩ and a wide range of inductance values from 0.10 µH to 4.7 µH. The IHLP-1616BZ-5A provides rated current to 19.0 A and handles high transient current spikes without saturation.

Packaged in a 100 % lead (Pb)-free shielded, composite construction that reduces buzz to ultra low levels, the inductor offers high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, and mechanical shock. The IHLP-1616BZ-5A is RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green http://www.vishay.com/doc?99912.
