Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new Automotive Grade IHLP® low-profile, high-current inductor in the 5050 case size featuring a +180 °C continuous operating temperature rating for under-the-hood applications. Offering a low 6.4 mm profile, the Vishay Dale IHLP-5050FD-8A provides a wide range of inductance values from 0.22 µH to 22 µH.
With a frequency range up to 2 MHz for energy storage inductors in DC/DC converters and up to the inductor’s SRF for filter applications, the device released today exceeds AEC-Q200 requirements to provide a high-performing, space- and power-saving solution for DC/DC converters and high-current noise filters in high-temperature automotive systems. Applications include engine and transmission control units, diesel injection drivers, noise suppression for motors, windshield wipers, HID and LED lighting, heating and ventilation blowers, and other applications in which high-temperature operation is required.
The IHLP-5050FD-8A handles high transient current spikes without hard saturation. Packaged in a 100 % lead (Pb)-free shielded, composite construction that reduces buzz noise to ultra-low levels, the device is specified for an operating temperature range of 55 °C to +180 °C, with high resistance to thermal shock, moisture, mechanical shock, and vibration. The inductor is RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green.
