New Precision Current Sense Resistors
PCS-3 and PCS-100 resistors have a 4-terminal Kelvin connector and offer very low ohmic values, beginning at 1mΩ. Resistance tolerances for both designs are at 1%, 2%, and 5%. With a compact design, these resistors are ideal for many current monitoring and controls applications. The PCS-3 has a power rating of 3W at 70°C, maximum 40A permanent load. Standard resistance values available are 1mΩ to 1Ω. Standard resistance values of the PCS-100 range from 50mΩ to 1Ω. Its power rating is 100W at 70°C maximum 50A permanent load.

Dual-Side Cooling Power MOSFET Package
Compared with older technologies, dual-sided DirectFET cooling doubles the system current density of high current dc-dc converters. While the typical junction-to-p. c. board thermal resistance (Rqj-pcb) for an SO-8 is about 20°C/Wmax, a DirectFET package with the same footprint achieves less than 1°C/Wmax. With a low die-free package resistance, this packaging reduces the amount of heat generated by the device. Compared with older technologies, dual-sided DirectFET cooling achieves new levels of conductivity and thermal characteristics.
