Stackpole launches 7W current sensing resistor
Power electronic engineers continue to push for higher power, lower values, and better precision. Most common resistor technologies cannot adequately meet all three requirements, but Stackpole’s CSS/CSSH Series is able meet these demands in a variety of sizes, power ratings and values.
How sensor technology is the key for autonomous vehicles
Sensors are very much a part of modern vehicles and even more so as we move to the future of transportation. They play a crucial role in safety via a variety of technology that aids the driver. Sensors are also used in vehicle maintenance, identifying current and future issues that need addressing and relaying real-time information to an engineer. Richard Woodward, Product Manager for Sensor Technology at Distrelec discusses.
