Ultra-high power thick film chips provide PCB space savings

22-11-2021 | Stackpole | Passives

As today’s electronics devices push the case for smaller designs and higher functionality, Stackpole offers the RMCP-UP is a high-power thick film chip resistor providing very high-power ratings for every case size, covering 0.2W rated 0402 size to 3W 2512 size. These elevated power ratings enable design engineers to utilise smaller chip resistors to free up space for other components or decrease the overall board space required to add functions and features.

Reducing resistor footprints on a PCB is crucial for commercial applications, particularly portable electronic devices. The thick film-based device is cost-effective, RoHS and REACH compliant, and Halogen free. Pricing for the device varies with size, resistance value, and tolerance.
