Bourns CHP series ultra-high power thick film chip resistor
Bourns announces the CHP series ultra-high power thick film chip resistor
Bourns is pleased to announce the introduction of its new ultra-high power thick film chip resistor series. This new surface mount series helps strengthen the already broad range of surface mount chip resistors offered by Bourns.
The new Bourns® Model CHP ultra-high power thick film resistor series offers triple rated power compared to general purpose resistors. It comes in four different footprints from small 0603 (1608 Metric) up to 2512 (6431 Metric). The Model CHP series has a wide resistance range from 0.1 ohms and high rated power, making it ideal for current sensing. It also has a superior pulse load capability. These resistors are suitable for use within consumer electronics, industrial automation, power supply and LED lighting applications, and communication base stations.
These resistors are made using a thick film element printed onto a ceramic substrate. The 2512-size version offers 3 watts of rated power at 70 °C which is higher than most comparable products on the market.
