Tantalum nitride precision chip resistors provide improved pulse handling

15-02-2023 | Stackpole | Industrial

Precision electronics applications, including instrumentation, medical devices, avionics, and aerospace, not only need resistors with tight tolerance and low TCR but also provide environmental stability. When these applications also need pulse handling, finding the correct resistor can be difficult because precision thin film resistors are not generally known for their pulse handling.

Stackpole Electronics’ RTAN tantalum nitride precision thin film resistors deliver excellent long-term environmental stability, particularly regarding moisture corrosion resistance. Also, the series has improved pulse handling of almost 2X compared to nichrome resistors.
