KOA Speer Introduces TLR1E, One of Industry's First 0402-Sized Metal Plate Resistors

Press release date: Oct 18, 2012

Bradford, PA - KOA Speer Electronics is pleased to introduce the TLR1E, one of the first metal plate resistors in a 0402 package on the market. TLR1E features a 10mΩ resistance value with a TCR of ±100ppm/°C.

Available in 2% or 5% resistance tolerance, the TLR1E incorporates metal alloy, offering superior corrosion and heat resistance. The new 0402 size also features an ultra-low height with a thickness of 0.25mm and a power rating of 0.2W.

Ideal for telecommunications and consumer electronics, the TLR1E is perfect for applications such as handheld devices, computing devices, tablets or computers. Prices start at $0.49/each, and have a lead time of 10-12 weeks. Samples are available upon request.

KOA Speer's TLR series metal plate current sense resistors offer high reliability and performance with TCR as low as +75ppm/°C and an ultra-low resistance range of 1mΩ - 20mΩ. Other power ratings include 0.5W, 1W & 2W in a ±1% tolerance. The TLR resistor is used for voltage division, pulse applications and current sensing.
