MLFA AEC compliant MELF resistor offers high reliability
Stackpole has announced that it offers engineers a solution for these applications with its MLFA Series. The MLFA is an AEC-Q200 compliant MELF resistor that offers exceptional electrical and environmental performance with low thermal resistance.
RMEF 100% lead free thick film chip resistors released
Applications for thick film chip resistors which are 100% lead free without exemption continue to expand. Finding resistors for those applications can be challenging since there are few options currently available.
Ceramic carrier chip resistors with values down to 2.5mΩ
Stackpole electronics has announced that it has the CSRF0603 foil on ceramic carrier chip resistors in stock in values as low as 2.5 mΩ, combining small size and low resistance values for maximum electrical and dimensional efficiency.
HVA high voltage axial leaded resistors rated up to 8kV
Engineers face challenges when designing electronics that require a high voltage axial leaded resistor because of limited options and high cost. Stackpole's HVA series axial leaded high voltage resistors provide high voltage handling in a cost effective, compact thru-hole package.
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.
RMCP high power thick film chip resistors available
Stackpole’s RMCP is a thick film chip resistor with high power capability and is now available in resistance values up to ten megohm. This expanded resistance range and high power handling make the RMCP useful for a wider range of general purpose application requirements and circuit functions.
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.
High current SMD shunt resistors for high pulse handling
Power electronics that utilise current sensing resistors for power control have a wide range of typical requirements. For those applications that require high power handling with low self-heating and high surge currents, the HCS high current SMD shunts from Stackpole are a good choice.
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.
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.
Improved voltage ratings for RNCF0402 thin film precision chip resistors
As modern electronics evolve, engineers are challenged to expand functionality in smaller packages. To facilitate this these demands, resistors and other components need to be available in small case sizes without sacrificing performance. Chip resistors with smaller sizes and higher performance are critical to the evolution of portable test and measurement equipment, portable medical electronics, diagnostic devices, and high end portable aud...
Stackpole improved power ratings for RMCP1206 and RMCP1210 sizes
Electronic devices that require downsizing or increased functionality may utilise high power surface mount resistors to accomplish this. High power surface mount chip resistors utilise materials designed for the higher temperatures associated with higher power levels. Stackpole's RMCP series is a thick film technology providing higher power capability for a given chip size.
HVAM20 ultra-high voltage thru hole resistors
As the varieties of electronics applications have increased, their voltage requirements have changed in multiple ways. Both higher and lower voltage applications have become common. High voltage resistors to handle the high voltage application requirements can be problematic due to the limited types and capability of most resistors currently available. Stackpole's HVAM series offers working voltage ratings from up to 15KV for the HVAM20 to u...
HDM series economical thru hole anti-moisture resistors
Electronic content has rapidly increased in a wide variety of markets. For applications that reside in humid or unpredictable environmental locations, resistors with robust performance in humidity and under environmental stress is key. Typical anti-moisture resistors are expensive and have limited availability.
Metal oxide resistors low cost alternative to wirewounds
As electronics evolve, the power and pulse requirements have changed higher efficiency electronics and motors mean lower power, voltage, and current requirements. As a result, designs which have traditionally required a carbon composition or wirewound resistor may now be able to use a lower cost metal oxide resistor.
CSRT0201 Stackpole thin film current sense chip resistors
Power supplies and power controls have a wide range of sensing requirements. For applications that require high sensing precision, the element TCR is more important than low resistance values.
