The new WSLP1206 surface-mount Power Metal Strip® resistor is a 1 W current sensing resistor in the very small 1206 package size. The small size of the WSLP1206 resistor allows it to replace larger current sensing resistors, saving space on the circuit board that in turn will create smaller and lighter products for the consumer. It is intended for current sensing, voltage division, and pulse applications. Manufactured using proprietary techniques that result in extremely low resistance values, the WSLP1206 features all welded construction with a solid metal Nickel-Chrome or Manganese-Copper alloy resistive element. The resistor offers very low inductance values from 0.5 nH to 5 nH and low thermal EMF.
