Raleigh, N.C. Stackpole Electronics, Inc. has developed a series of axial-leaded film resistors that are not susceptible to corrosion in high-moisture environments. The HDM series will allow designers to use a relatively less expensive film resistor technology for applications where humidity and moisture corrosion are a concern.
The HDM series is available in standard mini 1/2-watt and mini 1/4-watt leaded resistor sizes and tolerances as low as 1%. The resistance value ranges from 1 ohm to 2.2 Moms. They are available in standard tape and ammo packaging.
Pricing: $10.00 to $15.00 per thousand
Availability: Delivery is nine weeks.
