Vishay Intertechnology Releases New DSCC-Approved, MIL-PRF-32159-Qualified, Zero-Ohm Jumper
Thick Film Chip Resistor Jumper Provides Industrial-Grade (C) or Military-Grade (M) Failure Rates in 13 Case Sizes
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — Nov. 22, 2010 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (VSH: NYSE) today released a new DSCC-approved, zero-ohm chip resistor that is fully qualified to MIL-PRF-32159, type RCZ. For military, avionics, space, and medical applications, as well as those in harsh environments, the RCWPM Jumper provides established reliability with a military-grade failure rate.
The RCWPM Jumper is offered in all 13 case sizes of the MIL-PRF-32159 specification, and provides extremely low maximum resistance values down to 20 mΩ. The jumper offers designers a wide range of power ratings from 0.035W to 1.0W, and current ratings from 1.1A to 6.3A.
Featuring a stable thick film resistive element and a 96 % alumina substrate, the RCWPM Jumper offers “B” style terminations with a tin/lead wraparound over nickel barrier. The device’s electroplated nickel barrier layer enables high-temperatures operation to +150°C.
The jumper is 100% Group A screened per MIL-PRF-32159, and is halogen-free according to the IEC 61249-2-21 definition.
