Stackpole's Raised Element Current Sense Resistor Lower PCB temps

RALEIGH, NC (April 3, 2018) - Stackpole's BR series offers 1W, 3W, and 5W power ratings in a raised element thru hole current sense resistor. The raised element improves the convection cooling of the part to the ambient air and minimizes the heat conducted to the PCB. Resistance values range from 5 milliohm to 100 milliohm in tolerances as low as 1%. The all metal element offers robust pulse and surge handling making the BR an excellent choice for power supplies, small motors, industrial controls, as well as audio applications, robotics, and portable power tools.

Stackpole Introduces the RTAN Series Precision Thin Film Tantalum Nitride Chip Resistors

Stackpole Electronics, Inc. announces the release of their new RTAN series chip resistors. The AEC qualified RTAN is a Tantalum Nitride precision thin film resistor that is impervious to moisture corrosion. This type of thin film technology passes biased humidity testing at 85°C, 85% relative humidity, and 10% rated power for more than 1000 hours with very little shift in resistance. In addition, the materials and design are such that the RTAN is resistant to sulfur contamination and will pass the industry standard sulfur test ASTM B809-65 with minimal resistance shift.
