Stackpole Melf Resistors Qualified to AEC-Q200

Raleigh, N.C. – Stackpole announces the release of the MLFA Series of AEC-Q200 qualified precision metal film melf resistors. AEC-Q200 has become an important passive component qualification standard for a variety of industries and end products and is no longer merely an automotive requirement. The MLFA meets all of the requirements of AEC-Q200 with exceptionally…

Component Manufacturers Target Harsh Environments

As demand for electronics components that can be used in harsh environmental conditions continues to increase, interconnect, passive and electromechanical device (IP&E) manufacturers are developing more designs that operate in a wide range of harsh environments, and quite often, also deliver smaller form factors to fit into space-constrained systems and applications. Demand also continues to…

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…

EDS Showcases IP&E Components

The Electronics Distribution Show (EDS) held earlier this month not only highlights the tight partnerships between electronic component manufacturers and distributors, it also gives component suppliers the chance to showcase some of their newest product introductions. This year many of the new products fell into the category of interconnect, passive and electromechanical (IP&E) components from…
