Raleigh, N.C. Stackpole Electronics, Inc. has introduced the RNCW series of thin-film wire bondable chip resistors. These devices are currently available in 0402 and 0201 case sizes.
Because the RNCW series resistors are manufactured using thin-film technology, they deliver excellent overall stability and performance and are available in tolerances as low as .1% and temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) values down to 25 ppm. The wire bondable surface termination is gold-plated over nickel barrier. The series is RoHS compliant.
This series is designed for the high-speed and portable communications markets such as cell phones, PDAs, laptop modems, and Bluetooth-enabled devices. However, they can be used in a variety of other applications including hearing aids, medical probes, and implantable devices
Pricing: Ranges from $.20 each to $.50 each in minimum quantities, depending on size, tolerance and volume. The chip resistors are available in standard tape-and-reel packaging.
