KOA Speer Introduces New Power Rating of 1.5 W and T.C.R. of ±75ppm/°C to WU73 Series Wide Terminal Resistor

Bradford, PA - May 10, 2018 - KOA Speer Electronics introduces the WU732B15 wide terminal low ohm chip resistor available in a 0612 package with a 1.5Watt power rating. This resistor also has added a new T.C.R. of ±75 ppm/°C in a resistance range of 13mΩ ~ 27mΩ. The WU73 series also includes the WU732B resistor with a 1Watt power rating in a 0612 size and a new T.C.R. of ±75 ppm/°C. The WU73 series is a precision wide terminal resistor offering resistance values from 10mΩ to 100mΩ with a standard tolerance of ±1% and a wide operating temperature range of -55°C to +155°C.

KOA Speer's WU73 chip resistor is designed with wide side electrodes that provide better heat dissipation and a smaller size compared to other standard chip resistors. This wide terminal resistor is ideal for the automotive, telecommunication and consumer electronic markets, in applications such as DC to DC conversion and AC adaptors, automotive ECU and motor circuits.

WU73 series resistors are AEC-Q200 qualified. Lead time is twelve weeks. Please contact KOA Speer for samples or more information.
