Vishay Intertechnology has released an IHLP low-profile, high-current inductor that offers a continuous operating temperature of 155°C and efficiency with typical DCR from 4.0mΩ to 102.0mΩ. The inductor offers high resistance to thermal shock, moisture and mechanical shock, according to the company.

The Vishay Dale IHLP-1616BZ-5A is optimised for energy storage in DC/DC converters up to 2MHz. It also provides noise reduction of high current filtering applications up to the SRF of the inductor. The device features a wide range of inductance values from 0.10µH to 4.7µH. The IHLP-1616BZ-5A provides rated current to 19.0A and handles high transient current spikes without saturation.

The RF component comes in a 1616 case size with low profile of 2mm that 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 inductor is bundled in 100% lead (Pb)-free shielded, composite construction that reduces buzz to ultra low levels.

The IHLP-1616BZ-5A is AEC-Q200-qualified, RoHS-compliant, halogen-free and Vishay Green.
