Resistors with gold-plated contacts

  • 01-Jul-2014 09:52 EDT

A member of the VMx precision resistor family with gold-plated contacts, Isabellenhütte’s VMx-A series of gold-plated low-ohmic resistors are suitable for mounting with conductive adhesive on high-temperature circuit boards. The established and gold-plated series have very high pulse-load capacities and long-term stability. The VMx-A versions of the resistors are not just suitable for component mounting by means of reflow and infrared (IR) soldering, but they can also be mounted with conductive adhesive. According to the company, the advantage of the gold-plating is that it allows models such as the 5.08 x 2.54 x 0.4 mm (0.2 x 0.1 x 0.02 in) VMP-A to be used in high-temperature applications, which makes it suitable for high-density integration applications and enables bonding with high-temperature circuit boards.
