14-06-2019 | RS Components | Passives

RS Components has signed a new global franchise agreement with Yageo. A key product type now instantly available from the company is Yageo’s comprehensive portfolio of chip resistors, incorporating general-purpose thick-film components and thin-film high-precision high-stability resistors; current sensing devices; resistor array networks; automotive-grade components; high-voltage and surge resistors; RF attenuators; and sulphur-resistant devices.


“This is a major global franchise agreement that means our passive component portfolio really steps up a gear,” said Andy Keenan, vice president product management for Board-Level Electronics at RS. “Bringing on board a world-leading maker in the form of Yageo solidifies our position of a major source of chip resistors and other passive devices, providing engineers and members of our DesignSpark community with a further alternative source of these important components.”
