Ultra Small High Current Power Inductors
NIC Components is pleased to announce the expansion of the NPIM family of high current shielded power inductors with the NPIM_L series.
NPIM_L surpasses the NPIS_LP ferrite based power inductors and NPIM_P metal composite power inductors with the availability of 7 standard sizes. Case sizes ranging from 2.0mm X 1.6mm to 4.0mm X 4.0mm (LxW) each with component heights of 1.0mm and 1.2mm. Inductance values range from 0.24uH ~ 10uH in ±20% (M) inductance tolerance.
Using an automatic assembly process makes ultra-small sizes possible while still allowing higher current ratings than conventional construction power inductors in the same size. Noise reduction is increased by use of its resin shielding material. An upgrade from standard ferrite based shielded power inductors, metal composite construction [NPIM] provides high saturation current characteristics, increased frequency performance, and higher efficiency.
Combining these two technologies results in a reduced size and increased performance power inductor. Saturation current ratings range from 0.9A to 10.8A with an operating temperature range of -40°C ~ +125°C.
Together with NIC's low ESR capacitors and metal film current sensing resistors the, NPIM_L series is ideal for use in high current power supplies, display drivers, voltage regulator applications from portable, handheld, space-saving devices to large scale networking solutions
