Vishay Intertechnology is expanding its offering of high-temperature Automotive Grade IHLP, low-profile, high-current inductors with a new device in the 2020 case size.
The Vishay Dale IHLP-2020CZ-8A combines a high continuous operating temperature (to +180° C) with a low profile of 3mm to save space in under the hood automotive applications.
The AEC-Q200-qualified device is optimized for energy storage in DC/DC converters up to 2 MHz. It also provides excellent attenuation of noise in high-current filtering applications up to the SRF of the inductor.
With its high-operating temperature, the device is designed for filtering and DC/DC conversion in engine and transmission control units, diesel injection drivers, advanced driver assistance systems, exhaust gas recycling pumps, and entertainment / navigation systems.
This is in addition to noise suppression for motors, windshield wipers, power mirrors and seats, HID and LED lighting, and heating and ventilation blowers.
The IHLP-2020CZ-8A features high efficiency with typical DCR from 3.95 to 195 mΩ and a wide range of inductance values from 0.22 to 15.0 µH. It also provides rated current to 18 A and handles high-transient current spikes without saturation. Packaged in a 100-percent lead (Pb)-free shielded, composite construction that reduces buzz to ultra low levels, the RoHS-compliant inductor offers resistance to thermal shock, moisture, and mechanical shock.
