Power resistors feature low inductance, wide resistance range

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has extended its family of thickfilm power resistors with the introduction of 30-W, 50-W and 100-W devices in industry-standard TO220 and TO247 packages. The resistors use a ceramic package design (with no metal tab) for direct-mounting onto heat sinks, which improves heat dissipation and reduces board space on PC-boards. In addition, they feature an exceptionally low inductance of less than 0.1 μH, making them suitable for use in power conversion and control applications.
