Vishay Intertechnology's IHSR-1616AB-01 Tapped as Electronics Industry Awards 2019 Finalist

High Saturation Commercial Inductor Delivers Low DCR, High Current Density for Multi-Phase Power Supplies

Malvern, Pa. — May 28, 2019 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that its IHSR-1616AB-01 high saturation commercial inductor has been named as an Electronics Industry Awards 2019 finalist in the "Power Product of the Year" category.

Organized by Datateam Business Media — the publisher of CIE magazine — the Electronics Industry Awards recognize outstanding people, products, and business practices in the electronics sector. Five finalists and one winner in each category were determined through a combination of voting by industry professionals and scoring by an expert panel of judges. Vishay's IHSR-1616AB-01 impressed both with its 50 % reduction in DCR over typical power inductors and standard DCR tolerance of 5 %, with 3 % tolerance available for more accurate current sensing.

Offered in the compact 4 mm by 4 mm 1616 case size with a low 1.2 mm profile, the IHSR-1616AB-01's low typical DCR down to 1.15 mΩ and inductance up to 0.068 µH allow for higher current density than competing technologies. As a result, the device can replace larger single-turn ferrite inductors to save space, enable slimmer end products, and deliver better temperature stability for multi-phase, high current power supplies and filters in computer, industrial, and telecom applications

With a frequency range up to 5 MHz, the IHSR-1616AB-01 is optimized for energy storage in DC/DC converters and high current filtering up to the self-resonant frequency (SRF) of the inductor (418 MHz to 856 MHz). The device offers high temperature operation to +125 °C, rated current to 62 A, and handles high transient current spikes without saturation.

Winners of the Electronics Industry Awards 2019 will be announced on Friday, June 21, during a ceremony held at The Tower Hotel in London.
