Vishay Intertechnology introduced a new series of thick film chip resistors for high-power, surface-mount RF applications. Offered in the compact 1206 case size, the Vishay Dale RCP series devices feature a power rating of 1 W at +70 °C with a standard board mount, and up to 11 W with active temperature control.
Optimized for high-power aerospace, military, 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 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.
