Automotive-grade thick film chip resistors provide anti-sulfur performance

10-08-2022 | Stackpole | Passives

Many types of electronic products across various market segments demand higher reliability components. Automotive-grade resistors provide increased reliability and improved performance without the high cost and limited availability of components procured to established reliability defence specifications.

Stackpole’s RMCA series is AEC-Q200 qualified and offers excellent long-term reliability. This series is produced on dedicated manufacturing lines with strict material and process controls essential for an automotive-grade chip resistor. This gives the series exceptional test performance to all AEC-Q200 tests and enhances the expected failure rate by a factor of ten or more. Also, it features outstanding anti-sulfur performance, passing the industry standard ANSI/ EIA977 sulfur test with minimal resistance shift at 105C.

The series is an excellent solution for automotive electronics, medical applications, non-established reliability defence and aerospace, and instrumentation and metering.
