April 29, 2024 /SemiMedia/ -- Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. recently introduced a new Automotive Grade IHDF edge-wound, through-hole inductor with rated current up to 72 A and saturation currents up to 230 A. Featuring ferrite core technology and a low 15.4 mm maximum profile, the Vishay Custom Magnetics IHDF-1300AE-1A operates over a demanding temperature range from -55 °C to +155 °C with low AC and DC power losses and excellent heat dissipation.

The edge-wound coil construction provides low DCR of 1.1 mΩ maximum, which minimizes losses and improves rated current performance for increased efficiency. Compared to competing ferrite-based solutions, the IHDF-1300AE-1A offers 75 % higher rated current. The device’s low profile package allows designers to meet the harsh mechanical shock and vibration requirements needed for AEC-Q200 qualification  while minimizing board height to save space. 

With an operating voltage up to 500 VDC, the AEC-Q200 qualified inductor is ideal for DC/DC converters, inverters, and motor and switching noise suppression. Target applications include high current, high temperature automotive systems, such as on-board chargers for electric (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV).

Samples and production quantities of the new inductor are available now, with lead times of 12 weeks. For more information, please visit https://www.vishay.com/en/product/34557/.
