BR series bare element shunts offer lower PCB thermal stress

Current sensing for motor control applications often requires robust current handling and the lowest possible PCB temperatures. Unfortunately, high current or overload current handling typically means higher PCB temperatures.

ASR / ASRM anti-surge resistors handle surges up to 10KV

High voltage applications such as HVAC controls, appliance and white goods controls, metering, automation, medical devices, digital storage, and surge protection devices typically require resistors with high working voltage that may be challenging to find. If the applications are low current or low energy, film resistors are an ideal technology.

RTAN tantalum nitride precision chip resistors offer improved pulse handling

Precision electronics applications such as instrumentation, medical devices, avionics, and aerospace not only require resistors with tight tolerance and low TCR, but also environmental stability. When these applications also require pulse handling, finding the right resistor can be challenging because precision thin film resistors are not typically known for their pulse handling.

Stackpole release CSRT-AS anti-sulfur metal film chip resistors

Applications such as industrial and automotive power control require low resistance values, high power ratings, and resistance to sulfur contamination. Stackpole state. Thick film chip resistors are not typically sulfur resistant, especially in higher power ratings, and many high-power resistor series do not offer values below 1ohm.

4th January 2023
Stackpole SMD wirewounds offer power ratings up to 4W

High power applications requiring resistors with power ratings above 1W can be challenging. For ceramic based chip resistors, this generally requires chip sizes of 2010 or larger which are susceptible to cracking and solder joint failure.

7th December 2022
Stackpole releases RPCA automotive grade pulse withstanding chip resistor

High reliability chip resistors can be more difficult to find and even more so when there are pulse handling requirements.

12th October 2022
Stackpole’s MLFM15 offers 0.3W power rating

MELF resistors are known for their thermal characteristics and their environmental and electrical stability.

30th September 2022
Stackpole expands CSRF2817 resistance range up to 0.1 ohm

Current sensing for a wide range of products and applications requires both low and high resistance values with high stability, reliability, and low TCR.

8th September 2022
Stackpole improves RMCS0603 working voltage to 75V

Sulphur contamination for thick film resistors is becoming a more prominent issue for a wide range of end products.

9th August 2022
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.

12th May 2022
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.

11th April 2022
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.
