Automotive grade surge withstanding chip resistor has outstanding pulse handling

26-04-2024 | Stackpole | Passives

Many types of electronic products across various market segments need higher reliability components. Automotive grade resistors offer increased reliability and enhanced performance without the high cost and limited availability of components procured to established reliability defence specifications. For those applications that also need defined pulse withstanding the options become limited.

Stackpole Electronics’ RPCA series is AEC-Q200 qualified and supplies exceptional pulse handling due to proprietary materials, design, and manufacturing processes. This series is produced on dedicated manufacturing lines with strict material and process controls necessary for an automotive grade chip resistor including 100% AOI. This provides the resistor with exceptional test performance to all AEC-Q200 tests and improves the expected failure rate by a factor of ten or more. Also, the resistor features outstanding anti-sulfur performance, passing the industry standard ANSI/EIA977 sulfur test with minimal resistance shift at 105C.

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