Bourns PWR163 Series Power Resistors

Bourns PWR163 Power Resistor Series is a D2PAK style surface mount power resistor that offers low inductance, making it ideal for high-frequency applications such as amplifiers for audio or wireless base stations. The PWR163 Series Power Resistors from Bourns are smaller than the D2PAK package and are electrically isolated from the backplate. These resistors also have a high power rating of 25W at 25°C. The PWR163 series resistors also have excellent pulse characteristics, that allows them to be used in current limiting or capacitor discharge circuits.
