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.

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.

Four terminal current sense resistors offer high accuracy

Current sensing for high efficiency can be done easily and economically using current sense resistors. As resistance values are reduced, the measurement error due to lead resistance becomes more of a problem. For applications desiring high efficiency with the best possible temperature accuracy, four terminal current sensing products are a good choice.

HCSM2818 high current shunt resistors with 5W power

The HCSM2818 from Stackpole is only marginally larger than a standard 2,512 size chip but offers a 5W continuous power rating to maximise power handling in a given PCB area. The AEC compliant HCSM2818 offers one and five percent resistance tolerances in resistance values of four, five, ten, 15, 20, and 25 milliohms. TCR ranges from 200ppm for the four and five milliohm values to 75 ppm for the values 10 ppm and higher.

Anti-surge axial leaded resistors for high pulse voltages

For high pulse voltage, anti-surge axial leaded resistors such as Stackpole’s ASR / ASRM series, offer stable electrical and environmental performance, good pulse handling, and have lower inductance than wirewound resistors. The ASR / ASRM can handle pulse voltage discharges from one to ten kilovolts and are rated for working voltages of up to four kilovolts depending on size and resistance value.

RMCW wide terminal thick film chip resistors in stock

Industrial and commercial power electronics demand robust resistor performance. When high stability and low thermal resistance are important, standard chip resistors may not be the best solution. Chip resistors with reverse geometry provide terminations on the long sides of the chip, as opposed to the short side terminal for standard chips.

Improved power rating for precision chip resistors

Stackpole recently enhanced their RNCF0402 size Nichrome precision chip resistor, increasing the power rating to 0.1W for resistance values from 4.7 ohms to 255K for 0.1% tolerances and 25 ppm TCR. This improved power rating allows the RNCF0402 to be used for applications that may normally require an 0603 or 0805 size chip resistor enabling downsizing and making added functionality much easier.

Stackpole adds 5ppm capability to MELF resistors

Modern electronics have become more complex and their requirements more precise. For those applications that require low TCR, good pulse handling and low self-heating, a MELF resistor is often the best choice.

Stackpole NWWP non-inductive anti-surge wirewounds

Stackpole has released the NWWP series axial leaded wirewounds that provide good anti-surge characteristics in a non-inductively wound design. The Ayrton-Perry winding greatly reduces inductance to a fraction of what a standard winding would provide while the robust wire design maximises element mass for exceptional energy handling.

3.5W rated CSRT2512-UP current sense chip resistor

Power supplies and power controls have a wide range of sensing requirements. For applications that require high sensing precision and high power where the element TCR is more important than low resistance values, the CSRT2512-UP offers a 3.5W rated current sense chip resistor in a package that normally only allows for one or two watts.

CSS2725 current sense resistors available in 0.2mΩ values

Today's high current power supplies demand high efficiency and accuracy. This can be difficult because typically low resistance values cannot offer low TCR. Stackpole’s CSS2725 is a surface mount four watt all-metal current sense resistor that is now available in resistance values down to 0.2mΩ in 100 ppm TCR.

6th October 2020
Stackpole CSSH0805 available in 0.5mΩ resistance values

High efficiency current sensing requires low resistance values to minimise wasted power. As applications downsize, engineers are challenged to find lower resistance values in small case sizes. Stackpole has announced that it now offers the CSSH0805. This all-metal 0805 case size is capable of dissipating up to one watt of power at resistance values 0.5mΩ.
