Metal Composite; Miniature Chip Size Power Inductors
NIC Components is pleased to announce the expansion of the metal composite shielded power inductor family with the new NPM series.
The NPM offers a reduced size option vs. traditional NPIMx family from NIC. Available in 0806, 1008 and 1210 case sizes with component heights of 1.0mm and 1.2mm the NPM series has inductance values ranging from 0.24uH ~ 2.2uH in ±20% (M) inductance tolerance.
The NPM Series meets PB-Free reflow conditions up to 260°C and is RoHS Compliant without exemptions, halogen free and REACH SVHC 168 compliant.
Contact NIC Components today for free samples and to review your circuit requirements.
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 NPMx construction moves from the traditional 'NPIM' construction moving from a lead frame termination to EIA chip style terminations providing reduced footprint and profile size options as small as 0603 (1.6 x 0.8 x 0.8mm).
Together with NIC's low ESR capacitors and metal film current sensing resistors the, NPM series is ideal for use in high current power supplies, display drivers, voltage regulator applications from portable, handheld, space-saving devices.
