Sulfur-Resistant Chip Resistors Outfit Computer Peripherals

Maintaining accuracy with a low standard TCR, the RNCP Series thin-film resistors are promoted as a low-cost alternative to high-power thick-film resistive technology. Impervious to sulfur contamination, the components are highly suitable for use in computer and peripheral applications. Specs and features include absolute tolerances to 1%, a TCR of 100 ppm/°C, 0402, 0603, 0805, and 1206 chip sizes, power ratings from 0.1W to 0.5W, and maximum working voltages from 50V to 200V. Depending on chip size, tolerance, and resistance value, prices range from around $1 to $10 per 1,000 in full reel quantities. STACKPOLE ELECTRONICS INC., Raleigh, NC. (888) 734-7347.
