Resistors for power management applications

Stackpole is offering resistors constructed with metal foil technology. This precision design allows Stackpole to achieve tolerances down to 0.5 per cent, TCR’s of 50 ppm TCR in resistance values down to 0.25 milliohms. These low-resistance values are suitable for power management applications where high efficiency is a priority allowing design engineers to dissipate less … Continue reading Resistors for power management applications
