Raleigh, N.C. Stackpole Electronics Inc. has expanded its FAST delivery program to include its RNC thin-film precision resistors and CSR series of current sensing resistors. The FAST delivery service was previously only available for the company's wirewound products.
Although the market for precision thin-film resistors is more of a niche market, and it's not practical to stock all ohmic values, temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) values and tolerance combinations, the company believes as design cycles continue to shorten there is a market need for shorter lead times.
The SEI FAST program features guaranteed three-week deliveries for quantities up to 50,000. In addition, Stackpole is one of the few companies to offer 1,000-piece reels, and can offer tolerances down to 0.02% and TCRs down to 10 ppm (RNC series).
Typical pricing ranges from $0.10 to $1.00 in quantities up to 50,000. Custom ohmic values are available.
