Lead-free thick film chip resistors
Surface mount resistors have complied with the EU’s ROHS standards through exemption 7c-I.
The exemption has been extended twice, but with an expiration date looming, many companies are seeking fully RoHS-compliant parts. To help companies transition to 100% RoHS compliant lead-free resistors, Stackpole offers its RMEF Series.
Stackpole’s RMEF is a general-purpose resistor series offering resistance values from 1 ohm to 10M, in 1% and 5% tolerances and TCR’s ranging from 100ppm (parts per million) to 400ppm depending on size and resistance value. The RMEF is an ideal substitute for electronics that must transition to fully lead-free components for compliance as it provides all the performance, resistance values, power, and voltage ratings of a general-purpose chip resistor – all in a completely lead-free package.
Stackpole Electronics Inc. is a leading global manufacturer of resistors. Headquartered in Raleigh, N.C., the privately held company began manufacturing in 1928 as part of Stackpole Carbon Company in St. Mary’s, Pennsylvania. Now part of the Akahane Stackpole Manufacturing Group, Stackpole has facilities in Japan, Taiwan, China, the US and Mexico.
