First 0612 Resistor Package From 0.5 mO to 5 mO

The WSK0612 surface-mount Power Metal Strip resistor is deemed the first four-terminal, 1 W current sensing resistor in a compact 0612 package size to offer a resistance range from 0.5 mΩ to 5 mΩ. It targets current sensing, voltage division, and pulse applications in dc/dc converters. Features include a durable construction with a solid metal nickel-chrome or manganese-copper alloy resistive element, TCR less than 20 ppm/°C, operation in temperatures up to + 170°C, and a thermal EMF of less than 3 μV/°C. Pricing starts at $0.13 each/100,000. VISHAY INTERTECHNOLOGY, INC., Malvern, PA. (619) 336-0860.
