Vishay Intertechnology has launched a new series of low-profile,
high-current IHLP inductors that claims to be the industry’s first to meet
the requirements of MIL-STD-981 class S. Designed for high reliability in
space-grade applications, the Vishay Custom Magnetics SGIHLP series of
inductors features a ruggedized package and performs at high operating
temperatures to 180°C.

The SGIHLP series, featuring a magnetically shielded construction,
are offered in five case sizes and are optimized for DC/DC converters and
high-current noise-suppression filters in satellites and defense systems.

Applications include low-profile, high-current power supplies, and
point-of-load (POL) converters; “flight-ready” solar inverters, high current
filters, and DC/DC converters in distributed power systems.

Key
features include high efficiency with typical direct current resistance (DCR)
from 0.56 mΩ to 240 mΩ, inductance values from 0.22 µH to 100 µH, and rated
currents to 100 A. Handling high transient current spikes without saturation,
the inductors provide excellent inductance and saturation stability over the
operating temperature range, said Vishay. Technical datasheets can be found
