NPIM_W Series New Product Introduction

October 26, 2017

NPIM_W Series
180°C AECQ200 Metal Composite Power Inductors

NIC Components is pleased to announce the expansion of the metal composite high current shielded power inductor family with the new NPIM_W series with the ability to operate in temperatures up to 180°C.

Extending from NIC's AECQ200 NPIM_PA and NPIM_A series the NPIM_W series a max operating temperature of 180°C has been to its strong feature list including higher current ratings and lower DCR. Two case sizes are currently available with 7.1 × 6.6 × 2.8mm and 11.0 × 10.0 × 3.8mm sizes. Inductance values range from 0.47uH ~ 68uH in ±20% (M) inductance tolerance.

Isat current ratings up to 29A with an operating temperature range of -55°C ~ +180°C.

The NPIM_W Series meets PB-Free reflow conditions up to 260°C and is RoHS Compliant without exemptions, halogen free and REACH SVHC 173 compliant.

Background & Application Focus
An upgrade from standard ferrite based shielded power inductors molded metal composite construction provides high saturation current characteristics, increased frequency performance, and higher efficiency at higher switching frequencies, making these ideal choices for today’s efficient DC-DC converters.

The NPIM_W series meets the requirements of AECQ200 and suggested for use in automotive grade applications or where higher quality components may be required.

Together with NIC's automotive grade hybrid aluminum electrolytic capacitors and thin film resistors the NPIM_W series is ideal for use in high current DC/DC converters, in dash automotive applications, LED drivers and motor control noise suppression applications.

NPIM_W Series Features

  • Meets the Requirements of AECQ200
