Chip resistors offer excellent resistance tolerances and low TCR

23-06-2023 | Stackpole | Passives

Applications such as medical equipment, instrumentation, test equipment, and precision controls commonly need resistors with tight tolerance and accuracy concerning temperature. However, finding quality chip resistors with tolerances tighter than 0.1% and TCR better than 25ppm can be challenging.

Stackpole Electronics' AEC-compliant RNCF is offered in tolerances down to 0.01% and TCRs as low as 2ppm for a wide range of resistance values and sizes. The nichrome technology of the RNCF delivers exceptional stability and reliability with very little resistance shift under normal load life and short-time overload conditions. Also, the device is REACH compliant, RoHS compliant, and fully lead-free without exemption.

The RNCF cost varies with size, resistance value, tolerance, and TCR and has many popular sizes and values currently available.
