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.

Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
