Vishay Intertechnology's RCP Series Thick Film Chip Resistors Offer High Thermal Conductivity for Power to 22 W in New 0505, 0603, and 2512 Case Sizes
MALVERN, Pa. — July 9, 2015 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that its RCP series of thick film chip resistors for high-power, surface-mount RF applications is now available in the compact 0505, 0603, and 2512 case sizes. The Vishay Dale devices offer very high thermal conductivity for power ratings up to 22 W with active temperature control.
Optimized for many applications in the automotive, aerospace, military, industrial, and telecom markets, RCP series resistors feature a stable thick film resistive element on an aluminum nitride (AlN) substrate and an epoxy encapsulation. In addition to their case sizes, the existing 1206 case has been enhanced to offer a rating of 2.4 W with a standard board mount. The devices feature an operating temperature range from -55 °C to +155 °C.
RCP series resistors offer a resistance range from 10 Ω to 2 kΩ, tolerance of ± 2 % and ± 5 %, and TCR of ± 100 ppm/°C. For improved solderability, the devices are available with tin/lead and lead (Pb)-free wraparound terminations over a nickel barrier. The resistors are compliant to RoHS directive 2011/65/EU and halogen-free according to the JEDEC JS709A definition.
Device Specification Table:
|Part number||Case size||Power rating (active temperature control)||Power rating (standard board mount) P25 °C|
|RCP0505||0505||5.0 W||1.4 W|
|RCP0603||0603||3.9 W||1.5 W|
|RCP1206||1206||11 W||2.4 W|
|RCP2512||2512||22 W||3.5 W|
Samples and production quantities of the RCP resistors are available now, with lead times of eight weeks for larger orders.
