NRB-XM Series New Product Introduction

December 20, 2022

Example Description

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

Extending from NIC's NPIM_P series the NPIM_PA adds AECQ200 availability to its strong feature list including higher current ratings, lower DCR and 6 standard case sizes. Case sizes ranging from 3.5mm X 3.2mm to 13.5mm X 12.5mm (LxW) with component heights of 1.8mm to 6.2mm. Inductance values range from 0.1uH ~ 220uH in ±20% (M) inductance tolerance.

Isat current ratings range from 14A to 118A with an operating temperature range of -55°C ~ +125°C.

The NPIM_PA Series meets PB-Free reflow conditions up to 260°C and is RoHS Compliant without exemptions, halogen free and REACH SVHC 169 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_PA 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 low ESR capacitors and thin film resistors the NPIM_PA series is ideal for use in high current DC/DC converters, in dash automotive applications, LED drivers and motor control noise suppression applications.

NPIM_PA Series Features

  • Meets the Requirements of AECQ200
  • High Saturation Current Characteristics (~118A)
  • High Efficiency (2x improvement over ferrite core inductors)
  • Stable Performance > 1Mhz
  • 6 Height & Size Combinations with Low Profiles Available
