RALEIGH, NC (January 25, 2012) - Stackpole Electronics Inc. announced the addition of the 1210 size to the CSR / CSRN Series of thick film SMD current sensing chip resistors. The CSR1210 has a 0.5 watt power rating and can achieve resistance values from 0.01 ohms up to 1 ohm in tolerances as low as 1%. Kory Schroeder, Stackpole's Director of Marketing commented: "for current sensing, the 1210 size chip offers distinct advantages in that the wider termination enables the part to handle more current than the 1206 size at temperatures typically 10 to 15 degrees C lower."
The CSR1210 Series is ideal for applications where resistance values are above 10 milliohms and TCR requirements are
200ppm and higher. This would include power management for a wide range of power supplies, small motor controls, DC to DC converters, battery management, instrumentation amplifiers,
voltage regulation modules, and industrial controls.
The CSR1210 is available in tape and reel packaging quantities of 5000 pieces. Pricing for the CSR1210 depends on resistance value and tolerance and ranges from $0.035 each to $0.14 each in full package quantities. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distributors for volume pricing.
