KOA Speer Introduces WG73 Wide Terminal-Surge Current Flat Chip Resistor

KOA Speer Electronics | New Flat Chip ResistorBradford, PA – August 03, 2018 – KOA Speer Electronics announces its new WG73 wide terminal type surge current flat chip resistor available in a 1020 package with a 1Watt power rating. The WG73 resistor is superior to KOA’s WK73 series in pulse withstanding voltage. The anti-surge WG73 features a T.C.R. of ±100ppm/°C, a resistance range of 560mΩ ~ 1KΩ, a standard tolerance of ±10% and ±20%, and a wide operating temperature range of -55°C to +155°C.

The WG73 chip resistor is designed with wide side electrodes that provide better heat dissipation and smaller size compared to other standard chip resistors. This wide terminal resistor is designed for high accuracy and current detection, making it ideal for automotive, telecommunication and consumer electronic markets, in applications such as power supplies, DC to DC conversion and AC adaptors, automotive ECU and motor circuits. The WG73 is AEC-Q200 qualified.

Lead time is ten weeks. Please contact KOA Speer for samples or more information.
