MLF / MLFM MELFs Provide Lower Heat Rise

The MLF/MLFM Series surface mount metal film from Stackpole (Raleigh, NC) offers cooler operating temperatures at full rated power. The cylindrical shape provides a termination that is far more thermally efficient than comparable size flat chip resistors. The solderable end caps do an excellent job of transferring the heat generated from the resistor both into the PCB and into the ambient air. This means more stable operation under a given set of electrical conditions, which enhances the long-term performance of the part. The nichrome film makes this part ideal in applications that require accuracy and precision along with cooler operating temperatures. Features include:

  • 1/4W, 1/2W, and mini 1W power ratings in 0204 and 0207 case sizes. 
  • 100 ppm to 10 ppm.
  • Tolerances down to 0.1%.
