Melf resistors designed for harsh environmental conditions
Stackpole has recently introduced the MLFA Series of metal film melf resistors. The MLFA Series is fully AEC-Q200 compliant and offered in the 0204 (0.4W) and 0207 (1W) sizes. The MLFA has exceptional stability demonstrated over life, biased humidity, and short time overload testing. In addition, the MLFA offers pulse power handling up to 3500 watts for single short duration pulses, and lightning surge withstanding up to 6KV for resistance values above 100K ohms.
They are well suited for applications including industrial / outdoor controls, electric and fuel powered engine controls, power control and monitoring, automotive applications, and telecom infrastructure.
The MLFA Series offers tolerances from 0.1% to 5% and TCR's from 15 ppm to 100 ppm. Pricing for the MLFA varies with size, resistance value, tolerance, and TCR.
