Vishay Intertechnology High Temperature IHSR Inductor Offers Higher Current Density for Multi-Phase Power Supplies
For Commercial Applications, Device Features Low DCR in 4040 Case With Slim 4 mm Profile
MALVERN, Pa. — Aug. 13, 2018 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced the first device in its new IHSR series of high temperature commercial inductors. Designed for multi-phase, high current power supplies and filters in computer, industrial, and telecom applications, the Vishay Dale IHSR-4040DZ-51 offers a 50 % reduction in DCR over typical power inductors and a 20 % or greater profile reduction over similar ferrite products. In addition, the inductor boasts an unprecedented standard DCR tolerance of 5 %, with 3 % available for more accurate current sensing.
With a frequency range up to 5 MHz, the device released today is optimized for energy storage in DC/DC converters and high current filtering up to the self-resonant frequency (SRF) of the inductor (see table below). Applications include notebooks, desktop PCs, and servers; low profile, high current power supplies and filters; and DC/DC converters for distributed power systems.
The IHSR-4040DZ-51’s low typical DCR of 0.520 mΩ and inductance of 0.130 µH allow for higher current density than competing technologies, while its 4 mm profile enables slimmer end products. The inductor offers high temperature operation to +155 °C, rated current to 92 A, and handles high transient current spikes without saturation. The device is available in the 10 mm by 10 mm 4040 case size; additional case sizes will be offered in the future.
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 IHSR-4040DZ-51 is RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green.
