August 12, 2015

NCLS Series 
Metal Foil on Ceramic Current Sensing Chip Resistors


NIC Components is pleased to announce the addition of low cost NCLS series of metal foil on ceramic construction current sensing resistors, to its expanded offering of SMT resistive products. NCLS series are supported in small 0603, 0805 and 1206 case sizes, with stable TCR of +/-100PPM/°C over -55°C to +155°C operating temperature range (power derated above +70°C).

NCLS is offered in resistance value range of 5mΩ ~ 40mΩ (0.005 ~ 0.040 Ohm) in 1%, 2% and 5% resistance tolerances with power ratings of 0.25W, 0.5W and 1W. NCLS series is ideal for use in high density low voltage high current circuits; including DC/DC, POL, voltage regulators and power converter applications.

RoHS and REACH compliant, NCLS series is supplied on tape and reel packaging, for automated pick and placement and are compatible with Pb-Free reflow soldering. Typical unit pricing ranges from $0.03 to $0.06 USD each, when purchased in production volumes. Contact NIC today to review your requirements, and request free samples for design and evaluation purposes.
