The LRK Series of ultra-low resistance thick film resistors is for current-sensing circuits in portable electronic devices such as laptop computers. The surface-mount resistors are part of the family of "flip chip" devices, which are terminated on one side only for face-down mounting on the pc-board. Ultra-low resistance values required for precision current-sensing circuits are achieved through a four-terminal design. The resistors are constructed with a thick-film resistive element on a ceramic substrate with four terminations.

Unlike industrial robots, which suffered a slight overall slump in 2012, service robots continue to be increasingly in demand. The majority are used for defense, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs); and agriculture, such as milking robots.
