Resistor Makers Address Anti-Sulfur Requirements

Sulfur contamination in chip resistors was primarily an issue for the automotive industry, but over the past several years it has migrated into other applications. Sulfur contamination can impact the long-term reliability of resistors in high-sulfur content environments. While there aren’t a huge number of applications in high-sulfur environments, in some industrial locations, such as…

Vishay Chip Resistors Offer 4X the Power Dissipation

Malvern, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has extended its RCWE series of thick film surface-mount wraparound chip resistors with new devices in the 0612 and 1020 case sizes. The Vishay Dale RCWE0612 and RCWE1020, with long side terminations, provide four times the power dissipation of standard devices in equivalent 1206 and 2010 footprints. These devices will save board…
