Resistor Networks Free Board Space And Simplify Layouts

By taking up less space than discrete products, these eight-resistor bussed networks free up board space for additional functions. They also greatly simplify layout and assembly procedures. The networks, which are used to provide signal impedance matching on high-speed motherboards, are offered in a 10-pin 1206 package with two ground connections. They consume only about 40% of the board space of networks based on discrete 0603 resistors. The networks are even small enough to fit underneath the motherboard’s CPU itself, allowing for further savings in board space and improvements in reliability by virtue of much shorter interconnection paths. The networks are offered in resistance values from 10 ohmsto 100 kiloohms with 5% tolerance. They can be handled by pick-and-place and reflow systems.
