NEXGW Series New Product Introduction

August 18, 2016

NEXGW  Series
Upgraded Temperature Rated EDLC

NIC Components is pleased to announce the expansion of the electric double layer capacitor (EDLC) family with the upgraded 85°C radial leaded NEXGW series.

An upgrade from the established NEXG series from NIC Components, the new NEXGW series features wide operating temperature range covering from -40°C ~ +85°C, with 1000 hour load life test ratings at +85°C compared to the legacy -25°C ~ +70°C operating range.

The upgrade temperature allows extended lifetime performance ideal for use as backup capacitors powering real time clock circuits for long durations. Circuit discharge currents can be up to 500uA, with long term holdup typical greater than 200 hours at 1uA.

Product Overview & Application Focus
The NEXGW is supplied in 5.1mm & 7.62mm lead pitches. Capacitance values from 0.047F to 2.2F (47,000µF ~ 2,200,000µF) and voltage ratings of 3.5VDC & 5.5VDC.

The NEXGW series meets PB-Free soldering conditions and are RoHS Compliant without exemptions, halogen free and REACH SVHC 169 compliant.

Together with NIC's high current power inductors (NPIM_P Series) and thin film current sensing resistors (NCSW Series) the NEXGW double layer capacitors are ideal for use in memory backup applications.
