SMT Inductors Specify Saturation at 40 A

A new series of low-profile surface-mount inductors in the 2525 package size has been announced by Vishay Intertechnology Inc. Devices in the IHLP-2525AH-01 Series are specified for saturation currents up to 40 A and offer typical DCR values as low as 3 mΩ in a package measuring 6.47 mm × 6.86 mm × 1.8 mm.

These new additions to the patented IHLP series provide lower DCR values than conventional solutions. The series' saturation current ranges from 8 A to 40 A, and typical DCR values range from 3.0 mΩ to 76.6 mΩ over a standard inductance range of 0.1 µH to 4.7 µH, with a tolerance of ±20%. At full rated current, IHLP inductors feature an inductance drop of less than 20%—a lower inductance roll-off than is provided by ferrite materials.

IHLP-2525AH-01 inductors handle high transient current spikes without saturation and operate over a frequency range up to 5 MHz. Packaged in a 100% lead (Pb)-free, shielded, composite construction that reduces noise buzz to ultralow levels, the new devices are specified for an operating temperature range of -55°C to +125°C.

Samples and production quantities are available now. Pricing for U.S. delivery only in 10,000 piece quantities starts at $0.82.
