Automotive Grade Inductor Gets Taller

Vishay Intertechnology’s automotive-grade IHLP inductor in the 4040 case size sports an increased profile of 5.4 mm. Offering a reduced DCR, increased current handling, higher inductance, and a high operating temperature range to +155°C, the Vishay Dale IHLP-4040ED-5A is suited for under the hood automotive applications.


The component features high efficiency with a typical DCR from 1.05 mΩ to 204 mΩ and a wide range of inductance values from 0.33 µH to 75.0 µH. The device provides current ratings to 36A and allegedly handles high transient current spikes without saturation.
