Vishay releases RCP, new thick film chip resistors on AlN substrates for high-power, surface-mount RF applications
Optimized for high-power aerospace, industrial, and telecom systems, RCP series resistors feature a stable thick film resistive element on an aluminum nitride (AlN) substrate and an epoxy encapsulation. Offering very high thermal conductivity in a small package size, the RCP series features an operating temperature range from -55 °C to +155 °C.
RCP series resistors offer a resistance range from 10 ohms to 2 kilohms, tolerance of 2 % and 5 %, and TCR of 100 ppm/ degrees 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. Samples and production quantities of the RCP are available now.
