Stackpole has expanded its CSS series of current sense chip resistors to include a 0.33W rated 0603 size and a 0.5W rated 0805 size. Both offer resistance values of 5, 10, and 15mΩ in 1% tolerances and 50ppm TCR.
This series utilises an all metal alloy construction durability, high temperature and high energy handling, and low inductance. Both sizes are AEC-Q200 qualified, are RoHS compliant and completely lead free.
Applications include portable power management for a wide variety of handheld electronics, high efficiency LED drivers, small motor controls, voltage regulators, robotics, Flash memory and storage, small panel solar power conversion and HVAC controls and energy management.
Pricing for CSS0603 and CSS0805 depends on size, resistance value, and tolerance, and ranges from $0.15 to $0.20 each in full reel quantities.
