Portsmouth, R.I., International Manufacturing Services, Inc. (IMS), announced their release of the APX-CS series of aluminum nitride (AlN) resistors. These surface-mount devices feature a metal center stripe on the backplane to improve thermal conductivity to the customer's groundplane. The stripe is electrically isolated from either of the wrapped terminals.
The resistors are aimed at manufacturers of power supplies, two-way radios, industrial instruments, communications equipment and other systems that require high power dissipation, coupled with an environmentally safe solution. Standard resistor case sizes include 0805, 1206, 2010, 2512, 2525 and 3725. Larger sizes are also available.
