Raleigh, N.C. – Using foil on ceramic carrier technology, the CSRF series of surface-mount current sense resistors from Stackpole Electronics provides very low resistance values in small case sizes while maintaining good temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR). The 0402 size is available in the popular 10 milliohm value, while the 0603 size is available in values down to 5 milliohms.
The combination of low resistance values and good TCR make the devices well suited for portable consumer electronics, including laptops, netbooks, tablets, e-readers, and portable media players. The lower resistance values translates into more efficient battery and power management and longer battery life, said Stackpole.
Availability: Many popular sizes and values are in stock or available through online distribution.
Pricing: Ranges from $0.10 to $0.30 each in full reel quantities. Pricing for the CSRF varies with size, value, and tolerance. Contact Stackpole for volume pricing.
