The CSRF Series from Stackpole (Raleigh, NC) is a surface mount current sense resistor series that utilizes foil on ceramic carrier technology. This structure allows for very low resistance values in small case sizes while maintaining good TCR. The 0402 size is available in the popular 10 milliohm value, while the 0603 size is available in values down to 5 milliohms. These low values and outstanding TCR are ideal for portable consumer electronics, which are constantly evolving with smaller sizes and more functions. Lower resistance values mean more efficient battery and power management and longer battery life. Applications include:

  • Laptops.
  • Netbooks.
  • Tablets.
  • E-readers.
  • Portable media players.
