Manchester, N.H. To help engineers and technical buyers make faster and better informed component sourcing decisions, RCD Components has released a new specialized passive component search engine at its web site called RCD InterActive. This new tool is designed to significantly speed up the search time required to find the right RCD component including capacitors, inductors, resistors, and delay lines for an application. It allows for more than 500,000 possible passive design combinations.
In addition to the basic search capabilities, RCD InterActive gives users the option to filter
their searches in ways that are relevant to engineers to quickly find the right product. For example, an engineer can search for a non-standard resistor with the following criteria SMD, thin-film, 0.1% tolerance, 50 ppm, 0.1 to 0.2 watts, 1000 ohm, 0 to 100°C temp range and find the part in a matter of seconds instead of hours.
You can search by physical dimensions including mounting type, material, technology, and lead options, and electrical specifications that include tolerance, operating and rated voltage, power rating, and operating temperature.
Specific component specs are also included in the search engine such as inductance range, DCR and SRF for inductors; temperature coefficient and resistance range for resistors, and capacitance range for capacitors.
Here's a sample search that you can test at the site.
