KOA has released new series of high temperature power pulse tolerant chip resistors ready for automotive and industrial use.
The HSG73P series has approx. 7 times pulse handling capability compared to standard flat chip resistors. Due to the special resistance trimming it also allows a higher continuous power rating. This means that existing designs can be ‘powered up’: An HSG73P device can be dropped onto the pads of a similar sized conventional part, thus increasing the power capability without changing the PCB layout.
