RMCW wide terminal thick film chip resistors in stock

Industrial and commercial power electronics demand robust resistor performance. When high stability and low thermal resistance are important, standard chip resistors may not be the best solution. Chip resistors with reverse geometry provide terminations on the long sides of the chip, as opposed to the short side terminal for standard chips.

Wide terminations offer a significant benefit in current handling and thermal resistance, which contributes to lower PCB temperatures for a given chip size and power rating. Stackpole's RMCW0612 size thick film wide termination chip resistors are now in stock in a range of popular values in one and five percent tolerances.

The RMCW is available in resistance values from 1ohm to 10M in one and five percent tolerances. Applications include power management, battery charging, motor controls, industrial machinery, appliances.

Pricing varies with tolerance and resistance value and ranges from $0.016 to $0.115 each in full reel quantities.
