CSM3637Z Current-Sensing Resistors
Vishay Foil Resistors has released a new ultra-high-precision Bulk Metal® Foil surface-mount Power Metal Strip® current-sensing resistor with a load-life stability of ±0.2% at +70 °C for 2,000 hours at rated power. The new CSM3637Z also features an absolute TCR of ±5 ppm/°C maximum from -55 °C to +125 °C, +25 °C ref., and a tolerance of ±0.1%. To learn more, visit

Bulk Metal® Z-Foil Wraparound Surface-Mount Resistor
Vishay’s VSMP series provides high rated power, excellent load life stability along with extremely low TCR all in one resistor. One of the most important parameters influencing stability is the temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR). Although the TCR of foil resistors is considered extremely low, this characteristic has been further refined over the years. The VSMP series utilizes ultra high precision Bulk Metal® Z-foil.

VCS1625Z Ultra High Precision Z-Foil Surface-Mount Current Sensing Chip Resistor
VCS1625Z Series is a surface mount chip resistor designed with 4 pads for Kelvin connection. Utilizing Vishay Precision Group’s Bulk Metal® Z-Foil as the resistance element, it provides performance capabilities far greater than other resistor technologies can supply in a product of comparable size. 0.05 ppm/°C absolute TCR removes errors due to temperature gradients.

This small device dissipates heat almost entirely through the pads so surface mount users are encouraged to be generous with the board’s pads and traces. To learn more, visit

VFCD1505 Z-Foil Surface-Mount Flip Chip Voltage Divider
Model VFCD1505 offers low TCR (both absolute and tracking), excellent load life stability, tight tolerance, excellent ratio stability, low thermal EMF and low current noise, all in one package. 0.05 ppm/°C absolute TCR removes errors due to temperature gradients. The VFCD1505 provides tight tolerance matching and TCR tracking between 2 resistors simultaneously etched on one piece of foil on a common substrate. The electrical specifications of this integrated construction offers improved performances and better real estate utilization over discrete resistors and matched pairs. To learn more, visit
