Vishay Introduces AEC-Q200 Inductor with 125A Continuous Current Rating

By Sarah RonkoskeMay 16, 2017

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., a Fortune 1000 Company and one the world’s largest manufacturers of passive electronic components and discrete semiconductors, recently announced the industry’s first AEC-Q200 qualified inductor that offers a continuous current rating of 125 A.

Vishay’s latest addition -  IHXL-2000VZ-5A – ideal for automotive and industrial applications, integrates the best-in-class endurance features for continuous operation at high temperatures up to +155 °C with a saturation current of 190 A that leverages 20 % inductance reduction.

The new AEC-Q200 qualified inductor, optimized for electric vehicles (EV), hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), wind power, and solar applications incorporates cutting-edge functionalities including reduced inductance of 2.2 µH, exceptionally low DCR down to 0.21 mΩ typical, and an effectual filtering frequency range up to SRF (13.1 MHz for 2.2µH).

IHXL-2000VZ-5A, specified for an operating temperature range of -55 °C to +155 °C, effectively manages high transient current surges without hard saturation while significantly lessening the buzz noise, bringing it down to ultra-low levels.

The newly released AEC-Q200 qualified device with 125A Continuous Current Rating features industry-leading dimension of 50.8 mm X 50.8 mm X 21.5 mm, packaged in a compact, 100 % lead (Pb) -free shielded build.
