Vishay Intertechnology Releases RCP, New Thick Film Chip Resistors on AlN Substrates for High-Power, Surface-Mount RF Applications

Devices Feature Power Ratings to 11 W With Active Temperature Control in Compact 1206 Case Size

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwired - Jan 23, 2014) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new series of thick film chip resistors for high-power, surface-mount RF applications. Offered in the compact 1206 case size, the Vishay Dale RCP series devices feature a power rating of 1 W at +70 °C with a standard board mount and up to 11 W with active temperature control.

Optimized for high-power aerospace, military, industrial, and telecom systems, RCP series resistors feature a stable thick film resistive element on an aluminum nitride (AlN) substrate and an epoxy encapsulation. Offering very high thermal conductivity in a small package size, the RCP series features an operating temperature range from -55 °C to +155 °C.

RCP series resistors offer a resistance range from 10 ohms to 2 kilohms, tolerance of 2 % and 5 %, and TCR of 100 ppm/°C. For improved solderability, the devices are available with tin/lead and lead (Pb)-free wraparound terminations over a nickel barrier. The resistors are compliant to RoHS directive 2011/65/EU and halogen-free according to the JEDEC JS709A definition.

Samples and production quantities of the RCP are available now, with lead times of eight weeks for larger orders.
