NPMH Series New Product Introduction

June 1, 2016

NPMH Series
Metal Composite High Current; Miniature Chip Sizes

NIC Components is pleased to announce the expansion of the metal composite high current shielded power inductor family with the new NPMH series.

The NPMH exceeds the NPM series with higher current ratings, lower DCR and reduced case sizes down to 0603 chip sizes. Available in 0603, 0805, 0806, 1008 and 1210 case sizes with component heights from 0.8mm ~ 2.8mm component heights the NPMH series has inductance values ranging from 0.24uH ~ 2.2uH in ±20% (M) inductance tolerance.

The NPMH Series meets PB-Free reflow conditions up to 260°C and is RoHS Compliant without exemptions, halogen free and REACH SVHC 168 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 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 NPMH series is ideal for use in high current power supplies, display drivers, voltage regulator applications from portable, handheld, space-saving devices.
