Stackpole's automotive grade thick film chip resistors

Automotive grade resistors offer increased reliability and improved performance without the high cost and limited availability of components procured to established reliability military specifications.

14th July 2022
Stackpole kelvin current sense shunt offers resistance values down to 0.5 milliohm

High efficiency current sensing requires low resistance values. However, lead resistance may cause inaccuracies in sensing measurement for ultra-low resistance values.

18th May 2022
Stackpole launches 7W current sensing resistor

Power electronic engineers continue to push for higher power, lower values, and better precision. Most common resistor technologies cannot adequately meet all three requirements, but Stackpole’s CSS/CSSH Series is able meet these demands in a variety of sizes, power ratings and values.

HCS high current metal shunt for hybrid power sources

As power electronics evolve, the requirements for high current, low resistance sensing resistors continues to increase. Emerging applications, such as hybrid power systems, may require high power, high accuracy, and low thermal resistance. These are a difficult combination for many traditional sense resistor technologies.

Stackpole improves TCR on RMCW wide terminal thick film resistors

Commercial and industrial power electronics increasingly demand robust power supplies with high stability and low thermal resistance. For these requirements, standard chip resistors may not be the best solution.

31st March 2022
CSSK3637 four terminal shunt resistors for accurate current sensing requirements

Current sensing for high efficiency typically requires very low resistance values. However, sensing accuracy is more challenging for lower resistance values due to lead resistance effects. Four terminal shunt resistors eliminate errors due to lead resistance.

9th March 2022
HCSM2818 current shunt resistors offer a 5W power rating

Modern electronics utilise current sense resistors for portable power management. As larger and more powerful devices become portable, higher currents and higher power ratings become critical, however, space for any portable electrical device must always be conserved.

17th February 2022
RNCF Ultra-Precision thin film resistors

RNCF Ultra-Precision thin film resistors offer Tolerances As Low As 0.01% and TCR Down To 2 ppm

9th February 2022
Lead-free thick film chip resistors

Surface mount resistors have complied with the EU’s ROHS standards through exemption 7c-I. 

23rd August 2021
RTAN series tantalum nitride precision chip resistors add 10 ppm/ºC TCR capability

Stackpole’s AEC qualified RTAN series utilises tantalum nitride technology to provide moisture proof precision chip resistor performance.

28th June 2021
CSRT2512-UP 3.5W high power chip resistors in stock

2512 size chip resistors can typically be found with one to two watt power ratings. However, as electronic devices add functions and capability, higher power ratings become increasingly important. Stackpole has the CSRT2512-UP, which is a 2512 size chip resistor with a 3.5W power rating, in stock currently in a range of popular values.

21st June 2021
Tantalum nitride precision chip resistors add TCR capability

Stackpole's AEC qualified RTAN series utilises tantalum nitride technology to provide moisture proof precision chip resistor performance. The RTAN film passes biased humidity testing at 85oC, 85% relative humidity, and ten percent bias with very little shift in resistance.

9th June 2021
Two watt power rating resistor with low self-heating

As electronic devices continue to evolve, finding resistors that have higher power ratings in a given package size are more and more important. However, higher power resistors can often generate significantly more heat than resistors with standard power ratings.

7th June 2021
3637 size for CSSK four terminal current sense resistors

High efficiency current sensing is commonly done using low resistance value resistors. However, as resistance values are reduced, the measurement error due to lead resistance becomes significant. For applications requiring high efficiency with the best possible temperature accuracy, four terminal metal element current sensing products are the ideal choice.

21st May 2021
2W 2512 size anti-sulfur chip resistors

Stackpole's RMCS series now offers a 2W power rating in a 2512 chip resistor size as the RMCS2512 ... -HP. This option doubles the standard 2512 power rating and allows for the RMCS-HP to be used for higher power applications that may have used a different technology previously.

Thick film chip resistors provide superior pulse handling

Applications that experience pulse events require special consideration for selecting resistors. General purpose thick film chip resistors have variable pulse handling depending on calibration trim length. As a result, their pulse performance can be unreliable.

21st April 2021
HCJ high current jumpers with robust overload handling

Zero ohm current jumper chip resistors provide an essential function for circuit design. They make trace routing easier for single layer PCB's, are easier to assemble in mass production and less costly than jumper wires. Some designs however require more robust current handling than general purpose thick film chip jumpers.
