|Stackpole Electronics’ RNCP series offers higher power handling compared to standard thick film and thin film chip resistors. The series is impervious to sulfur contamination due to the elimination of silver from the terminations. Additionally, the RNCP series does not have any lead-containing glass. The thin film resistor structure offers all of the usual stability advantages and low noise characteristics expected of this technology. Stackpole is able to lower manufacturing costs of the RNCP by using specialized materials, focusing on only 1% tolerance and 100ppm TCR and higher requirements, and by means of a proprietary high volume sputtering system.
The RNCP series is an ideal solution for a broad range of applications and end products that require higher power ratings in limited amounts of board space. It is an outstanding choice for all types of power systems, controls, industrial, and commercial automation as well as various types of low torque motor controls. It will also be useful for UPS devices and equipment in addition to backup power systems, audio applications, high speed communication, thermostats and HVAC, metering, monitoring, and detection as well as for avionics and instrumentation. The RNCP series bridges the gap between long-term reliability and low cost solutions. Additionally, the anti-sulfur properties make the RNCP a great solution for various types of automotive, industrial, and heavy equipment applications. Datasheet
