Current sense chip resistors offer low values in small sizes
The CSRF series from Stackpole is a foil on ceramic carrier technology which offers very low resistance values and low TCR in small chip sizes. With 0.25W rated 0402 size chips in values down to 3Ω and 0.5W rated 0603 size chips in values down to 2.5Ω, the CSRF is a suitable choice for electronics.
The consumer electronics industry is pushing more function and content into smaller portable devices and the CSRF is a key addition to the power and battery monitoring and control of the these portable electronic gadgets.
In addition, the CSRF offers TCR as low as 50ppm for some sizes and values and tolerances as low as one percent for precision and accurate sensing.
