Enhanced Performance Ultra Small High-Current Power Inductors

NIC Components announced the expansion of the automatic assembly power inductor family with the new NPIM_LP series offering enhanced performance compared to the NPIM_L series.

NPIM_LP surpasses the NPIM_L power inductors and NPM(H) metal composite chip inductors with the availability of 2 standard sizes. Case sizes ranging from 2.0mm X 1.6mm to 2.5mm X 2.0mm (LxW) with component heights of 1.0mm and 1.2mm. Inductance values range from 0.24uH to 10uH in ±20% (M) inductance tolerance.

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 -55°C to +125°C. Isat current ratings up to 9.5A with an operating temperature range of -55°C ~ +125°C.

The NPIM_LP Series meets PB-Free reflow conditions up to 260°C and is RoHS Compliant without exemptions, halogen free and REACH SVHC 173 compliant.

Background & Application Focus

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.

Together with NIC’s low ESR capacitors and metal film current sensing resistors the, NPIM_LP series is designed for use in high current power supplies, display drivers, voltage regulator applications from portable, handheld, space-saving devices to large scale networking solutions
