Vishay Intertechnology’s New Long Side Termination Thick Film Chip Resistors Feature Power Dissipation to 1.0 W and High Temperature Cycle Withstand Ability
RCL e3 Series Offers Tolerances of 1 % and 5 % and TCR of 100 ppm/K and 200 ppm/K in 0612 and 1218 Case Sizes
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — Sept. 8, 2010 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (VSH: NYSE) today released a new series of long side termination thick film chip resistors with high power ratings to 1.0 W and high temperature cycle withstand ability in 0612 and 1218 case sizes.
Qualified to AEC-Q200 Rev. C, the RCL0612 e3 and RCL1218 e3 feature wide terminals that enable high power dissipation. Their small case sizes save space on densely packed PCBs and allow a higher number of temperature cycles, thus improving solder-joint reliability for automotive electronic circuits and general purpose applications.
The RCL e3 series features tolerances of 1 % and 5 %, TCR of ± 100 ppm/K and
± 200 ppm/K and a resistance range from 1 Ω to 2.2 MΩ. The resistors offer a protective overglaze and pure tin solder contacts on a Ni barrier layer for compatibility with lead (Pb)-free and lead-containing soldering processes. The devices are compliant to RoHS directive 2002/95/EC and halogen-free according to the IEC 61249-2-21 definition.
Device Specification Table:
|Type||Resistance range||Resistance tolerance||TCR||Rated dissipation||Operating voltage|
|RCL0612 e3||1 Ω - 1 MΩ||± 1 %||± 100 pep/K||0.5 W||75 V|
|± 5 %||± 200 ppm/K|
|RCL1218 e3||1 Ω − 2.2 MΩ||± 1 %||± 100 ppm/K||1.0 W||200 V||± 5 %||± 200 ppm/K|
Samples and production quantities of the new resistors are available now, with lead times of 6 to 8 weeks for larger orders.
