ohm

 (Ω) [ōm]
the SI unit of electrical resistance, named for Georg Simon Ohm; one ohm is produced when a current of 1 ampere flowing through a conductor produces a potential difference of 1 volt. Impedance is also measured in ohms.

Ohm,

Georg Simon, German physicist, 1787-1854.
ohm - the practical unit of electrical resistance.
Ohm law - in an electric current passing through a wire, the intensity of the current in amperes equals the electromotive force in volts divided by the resistance in ohms.

When performing PI-DC simulations to gauge the voltage drop of the PDN, this is hard to justify and may lead to overly pessimistic results.
A voltage at least as negative (or cathodic) as that originally established at the beginning of the Tafel segment of the E-logI curve; measurement requires elimination of all voltage drops other than across the structure/electrolyte boundary

* Dual low-Vce(sat) transistors that provide thermal performance for charge currents up to 2 A, and have a Vce voltage drop of less than 240 mV when charging is done.
Low DC resistance ratings enable a low voltage drop that helps reduce overall power consumption.
The device's high-performance contact provides low voltage drop and high amperage carrying capability.
The voltage drop could cause a microprocessor or ASIC to shutdown or reset.
