Vishay’s highest rated MIL-PRF-55342 military qualified resistors are being featured by distributor New Yorker Electronics.

They are used in the avionics, military and space markets in both thick and thin film variants.

Found in nearly every existing military and aerospace program, including aircraft, satellites, missiles and ships, these resistors provide established reliability in chip resistors for a variety of cases, product levels, temperature characteristics, tolerances and termination materials.

Vishay MIL-PRF-55342/RCWPM Thin Film Surface Mount Mil Chip Resistors feature all-sputtered wraparound termination for excellent adhesion and dimensional uniformity.

They are ideal in applications requiring stringent performance requirements. Vishay Mil-Spec resistors undergo extensive environmental testing and 100% screening for every lot for T-level product assurance.

Key applications for the Mil-Spec Thin Film Resistors include missile and air flight controls, communication systems, ground support RADAR, guidance and navigation controls.

They are designed with wraparound termination featuring a firm adhesion layer covered with an electroplated nickel barrier layer for up to 150°C operating conditions.

Other features include its precision tolerances to ±0.1%, surpassing outgassing requirements of ASTM-E595, TCR to ±25ppm/°C and 100% power conditioning.

Vishay Dale's Thick Film Chip Resistors are MIL-PRF-55342 qualified and similarly provide established reliability for use in the military and aerospace industry.

The resistors fully conform to the requirement of MIL-PRF-55342 and have a verified failure rate at M, P, R, S and T levels.

They are 100% Group A screening per MIL-PRF-55342 and fully conform to the requirements of MIL-PRF-55342. They have an operating temperature range of -55°C to +150°C and a tin/lead wraparound over nickel barrier termination.

Every component Vishay provides to the military and aerospace markets is backed by the comprehensive testing and failure analysis capabilities of experts in meeting the requirements of the military environment.
