One watt current sense chip resistors
There is an on-going trend to smaller, portable and more functional devices in the consumer electronics world. This is particularly true in the current sense chip resistor market where power control architectures are being downsized even as the functionality is being enhanced.
High current four terminal shunt resistors
Low resistance values are important for high efficiency current sensing in that lower values mean less wasted power on the current sensing measurement itself. But sensing low resistance values becomes challenging because of lead resistance. Using a four terminal shunt resistor eliminates the detrimental effects of lead resistance on the current sensing measurement operation.
Small high voltage reed relay in mini SIL/SIP packaging
Pickering Electronics has launched an extremely small high voltage reed relay, housed in the miniature SIL/SIP package, new Series 131 reed relays have a footprint of just 12.5x3.7mm and a height of 6.6mm and deliver a minimum stand-off of 1,500V.
Chip resistors arrive in space-saving package
The TNPU e3 series of Automotive Grade ultra-precision thin film flat chip resistors from Vishay Intertechnology has been extended with a new space-saving component in the compact 0402 case size.
Small 100nF ceramic capacitor for mobile applications
Murata has announced a small new multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC). As portable devices such as smartphones, hearing aids, wearable technology and other modules become increasingly multifunctional and more compact, so the demand for higher circuit densities is growing among electronic engineers.
Small linear thermistors reach new thermal limits
Texas Instruments (TI) has expanded its temperature sensing portfolio to include linear thermistors that deliver up to 50% higher accuracy than negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistors. The higher accuracy of TI’s thermistors enables operation closer to the thermal limits of the other components and the overall system, helping engineers maximise performance while reducing bill-of-materials (BOM) and total solution cost.
High power resistors meet AEC-Q200 qualification
High power resistors with the AEC-Q200 automotive qualification are the first on the market according to Vishay Sfernice, the manufacturers.
