Industry-First Hi-Frequency IHLP Inductor Series, Boosting DC/DC Efficiency

IHLP-1616BZ-0H Devices Feature High Frequency Performance up to 10 MHz With Lowest Losses of Any Composite Inductor at 1 MHz and Above


Here comes the first extended-frequency inductor in the low profile, high current IHLP family by Vishay Technology. The new IHLP‑1616BZ-0H series features high-frequency performance up to 10 MHz with the lowest losses of any inductor on the market for frequencies of 1 MHz and above. By using the IHLP-1616BZ-0H, designers can improve efficiency and potentially reduce the size of DC/DC converter circuitry.

Typical applications for the IHLP-1616BZ-0H will include notebook and desktop computers, sensors, cameras, POL converters, and various battery-powered devices that require one or more regulated voltages. Working in conjunction with high-frequency controller ICs, the IHLP-1616BZ-0H allows lower inductance values and thus lower DC losses, as well as reduced high-frequency core losses, enabling a physically smaller size of inductor to be used while boosting energy efficiency.

The IHLP-1616BZ-0H series features a typical DCR from 5.5 mΩ to 26.6 mΩ and inductance values from 0.10 µH to 1.0 µH. The IHLP-1616BZ-0H provides rated current to 45.0 A and handles high transient current spikes without saturation.

Packaged in a 100 % lead (Pb)-free shielded, composite construction that reduces buzz noise to ultra-low levels, the inductor offers high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, and mechanical shock. The IHLP-1616BZ-0H is RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green.
