Vishay – Low-profile inductor supports switching frequencies up to 10MHz


Vishay Intertechnology has extended the low-profile, high-current IHLP family of inductors, introducing the IHLP-1616BZ-0H series which is compatible with switching power supplies operating at frequencies up to 10MHz. It also offers lower losses than any other inductor on the market at frequencies of 1MHz and above.

This means that, by using an IHLP-1616BZ-0H inductor, power-system designers can achieve higher system efficiency and potentially reduce the size of a DC-DC converter’s circuitry.

When used in conjunction with a high-frequency power controller, the IHLP-1616BZ-0H inductors enable the implementation of power designs with lower inductance values and thus lower DC losses as well as reduced high-frequency core losses.

The shielded, composite construction of the inductor keeps buzz noise to very low levels.
