Stackpole has announced that its RPCA automotive grade surge withstanding chip resistor series is AEC-Q200 qualified.

Many types of electronic products across a variety of market segments require higher reliability components. Automotive grade resistors offer increased reliability and improved performance without the high cost and limited availability of components procured to established reliability military specifications. For those applications that also require a defined pulse withstanding the options become limited.

Stackpole’s RPCA series is AEC-Q200 qualified and provides pulse handling due to proprietary materials, design, and manufacturing processes. This series is produced on dedicated manufacturing lines with strict material and process controls necessary for an automotive-grade chip resistor including 100% automated optical inspection (AOI). This provides the RPCA with exceptional test performance to all AEC-Q200 tests and improves the expected failure rate by a factor of ten or more. In addition, the RPCA features outstanding anti-sulphur performance, passing the industry standard ANSI/ EIA977 sulphur test with minimal resistance shift at 105C.

The RPCA is an excellent solution for automotive electronics, medical applications, non-established reliability military and aerospace, as well as instrumentation and metering.

Pricing for the RPCA depends on size, resistance value, power rating, and tolerance. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distribution partners for specific or volume pricing.
