BRADFORD, Pa., 14 Jan. 2016. December 21, 2015 - KOA Speer Electronics Inc. in Bradford, Pa., is introducing the WU73 1-Watt wide terminal low ohm chip resistor for applications such as power supplies, DC-conversion, AC adaptors, automotive ECU, and motor circuits.

The power electronics chip resistor is available in an 0612 package. The WU73 is a precision resistor offering resistance values from 10 milli-ohms to 100 milli-ohms with a standard tolerance of plus-or-minus 1 percent.

The WU73 chip resistor features wide side electrodes for better heat dissipation and smaller size compared to other standard chip resistors. This wide terminal resistor is designed for high accuracy and current detection.
