The widest range of thin film chip resistors are offered by RCD Components Inc. RCD Components is a leader around the world in the production of critical application passive components, and recently proclaimed an incredible advancement in their thin film surface mount resistor offering.
RCD Components is well known for their popular “BLU-chip” series and is now expanding to 11 standard sizes ranging from .02”X.01” to .40”X.25”, possessing temperature coefficients not previously available in a thin film surface mount to as tight as 1ppm, resistance tolerances to 0.01% as a standard (0.005% available), power ratings to 2W, voltage ratings to 500V and resistance values up to 10 Meg ohms.
The innovative BLU-chips by RCD use film processing techniques and materials that are very advanced, and also provide designer engineers with options as well as the answers they need in order to fulfill the challenges in regard to performance, stability, cost, and availability with today’s and tomorrow’s faster, smaller, lighter, lower-power, higher-precision, and more intelligent, electronic devices. Prior to this new invention, in order to have ultra-stability and precision in a surface mount package, companies have been restricted to a narrow resistance range and low-wattage bulk foil or wirewound resistors at high prices, or have been forced to consider trade-offs in performance. RCD’s BLU’s provide tight tolerances, low temperature sensitivity, and high stability required through a wide range of medical equipment, high performance audio equipment, precision measuring/test instruments, weighing scales, high reliability microelectronics, aerospace and military applications.
RCD’s ultra-high precision series features low noise, capacitance and parasitic inductance and production available right now across the globe.
RCD Components Inc. is known throughout the electronic components industry because of its wonderful service and stellar engineering. RCD Components Inc. was founded in 1973 and maintains its title of one of the fastest growing passive component manufacturers because of its ABZED ABsoluteZeroDefect guarantee, fast turnaround on non-standard products and inventory of over 2 billion components.
