The NRM series is the hybrid among the storage chokes. These are shielded automotive power chokes. The NRM series has been tested and approved according to AEC-Q200. It has the same structure as our Taiyo Yuden NRS series, differing though by the metal core — its special feature: the coil body has a ferrite core, cast, however, with “metal composite resin”. An additional new feature for the user: laterally upward solder pad extensions facilitate a clean and safe AOI. Please refer to our specialists for further information. Very high packing densities are possible due to an extremely small footprint and relatively large connection terminations. A good ratio of the base area to the connection terminations makes the component very safe, i.e. easy to solder and safe from vibrations and accelerations. Designs of 3.0 x 3.0 x 1.5 mm up to 6.0 x 6.0 x 5.4 mm are currently available. Inductors were realized up to 470 µH. Due to the low level of self-heating, the NRM series features high saturation current. Very large connection terminations in relation to the base area facilitate most reliable soldering. This advantage plus extremely flat designs make secure components possible, e.g. with low space height or as protection against vibrations and acceleration. In addition, the NRM series comes with a very high and strong mechanical strength. Furthermore, users might replace the NRS series by the NRM series if more space or an even higher current yield are required.
