Improved power rating for chip resistors

As design engineers continue to advance the miniaturisation of electronic devices while maintaining or increasing functionality, there is a corresponding demand for smaller and more precise electronic components, such as chip resistors. If a precision application needs small size and high-power handling, finding appropriate precision resistors can be challenging.

Stackpole has recently increased the power rating for the RNCF0201 size precision Nichrome chip Resistor to 0.05W. This improved power rating enables the device to be employed for applications that previously needed an 0402 or larger size chip resistor.

The outstanding precision and small size of the RNCF makes it a favourite choice for a broad range of consumer electronics, computer and telecom equipment, instrumentation, measurement systems, medical monitoring, and high-end commercial audio devices.
