Vishay’s new low-profile, high-current Dale IHLP 1616 power inductors enhance space and power savings in DC/DC converter applications and can now be sourced through TTI Inc, the world’s leading specialist distributor of passive, connector, electromechanical and discrete components. The surface-mount Dale devices improve battery performance, help reduce size of portable and handheld electronic devices with low losses at frequencies up to 5MHz, low DCR values, and have a height profile that is 30% lower than in conventional solutions. Designed for DC/DC converter and energy storage applications, the IHLP 1616 series will be used to replace taller, larger, and/or lower-performing inductors, thus enabling lighter, thinner mobile and desktop computers, servers, cell phones, digital cameras, global positioning systems, and other handheld electronic products. The inductors are fully RoHS compliant and 100% lead (Pb) free.
Benefiting from low profiles (1.2mm and 2.0mm), a shielded construction, and ultra low buzz noise, the power inductors can handle high transient current spikes without saturation. Technical details of IHLP 1616 series devices include a high frequency range of 100kHz up to 5.0MHz, lowest DCR/µH values (0.047µH to 4.7µH) and an operating temperature range from -55°C up to +125°C.
