Riedon Introduces Ultra-high Precision Foil Resistors in Leaded and Surface Mount Packages
Alhambra, California, USA–Riedon, a specialist manufacturer and supplier of cutting-edge, resistive solutions,announces the introduction of two new series of resistors that use Bulk Metal ™Foil technology to deliver superior performance. The new UHPL series of through-hole molded resistors provides high precision with a tolerance of ±0.005%, a TCR of ±2ppm and a load life stability of ±0.005%. The ultra-high precision, surface mount UHPC series achieves an extremely low TCR of ±0.05ppm with a power coefficient of 5ppm at rated power and a load life stability of ±0.005%.
Bulk Metal™Foil technology outperforms all other resistor technologies available today for applications that require high precision and high stability. The UHPL series resistors are built to handle unconventional environmental conditions with minimal drift over more than 10,000 hourswhile offeringtight tolerance, fast response time, low current noise and low thermal EMF. Typical applications include high-precision instrumentation and differential amplifiers. The UHPCseries builds on the same Bulk Metal™ technology to provide a significant reduction in the resistive element’s sensitivity to ambient temperature variations (TCR) and to self-heating when power is applied (Power Coefficient of Resistance, or PCR). This all helps achievethe remarkable load life stability, low noise and tight tolerances that characterize this design and suit it to applications such as automatic test equipment, precision measuring instruments and medical imaging.TheUHPC resistor has a full wraparound termination that assures secure contact during the manufacturing process, as well as providing stability during multiple thermal cycles.
Commenting on these additions to its product line, Riedon’sVP Sales & Marketing,Frieda Hovsepian, said, “Riedon prides itself on offering superior products along with engineering assistance to help customers with their new designs. We are equally proud to offer superior service with our capability to provide fastturnaround, if needed,and free test and evaluation samples within days.”
