RALEIGH, NC (August 31, 2010) - Stackpole Electronics, Inc. announced the addition of 1% tolerance to the popular RPC Series of thick film high pulse withstanding chip resistors. Previously this series was only available down to 5% tolerance due to the elimination of the calibration laser trim. Through proprietary materials and processing, Stackpole is now able to offer 1% accuracy with only minor sacrifices to the pulse power handling of the product.
"When the RPC Series was introduced, it offered excellent pulse withstanding that was previously not available in a thick film chip esistor," commented Kory Schroeder, director of marketing at Stackpole. "Over the last few years, we have had many inquiries from customers that require a pulse handling chip resistor with 1% resistance tolerance. In many applications, engineers are willing to accept a slightly lower pulse power handling in order to get the precision to 1% tolerance. The RPC Series is now an outstanding solution for those applications."
The RPC Series is available in standard case sizes from 0603 to 2512. Tolerances now range from 1% to 5% with a TCR of 200 ppm and are available for a wide range of resistance values. Pricing for the RPC Series will vary depending on size, resistance value, and tolerance and ranges from $0.04 each to $0.18 each in full reel quantities.
