Providing circuit designers with a low-profile chip and sulfur-resistant properties, SEI’s thin-film RNCP series resistors offer twice the normal power rating compared to standard thick-film technology, says the company. The elimination of silver and gold makes the devices impervious to sulfur contamination and reduces the cost to be within 10% of the cost of standard general-purpose thick-film chips. If a smaller case size can be used with new designs, then the pricing is less than the traditional thick-film solution. In addition, the RNCP series does not have any lead-containing glass, making it RoHS-complaint without exemptions. Suitable for harsh environments and long-term reliability products, the RNCP series offers all the advantages of thin-film technology including high power handling, high stability, and low noise. The RNCP series offers durable, high-performance characteristics for automotive electronics including engine control units, gearbox controls, body electronics, safety systems, power supplies, and braking systems.
