Stackpole's Broad Resistance Range for Precision Thin Film Chip Resistors

Press release date: Aug 19, 2014

RALEIGH, NC  — Stackpole's RNCF Series thin film chip resistors offer a wide resistance range in tight tolerance and low TCR precision. Resistance values from 24.9 ohms to 100K ohms are available in the 2010 and 2512 sizes in 0.01% tolerances and +/- 5 ppm TCR. The 0603 size has the narrowest range and still offers values from 24.9 ohms up to 15K in the same tolerance and TCR. These wider resistance ranges expand the utilization of thin film precision resistors into applications and functions not typically associated with this resistor technology.

  • Precision voltage dividers
  • Test and measurement
  • Precision controls
  • Medical monitoring and diagnostic equipment
  • Audio amplifiers
The RNCF Series is available in sizes from 0201 up to 2512, in resistance values from 1 ohm up to 3M ohm. Pricing varies with size, resistance value, tolerance, and TCR and ranges from $0.025 to $1.15 each in full reel quantities. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distributors for volume pricing. Many popular sizes and resistance values in the tightest available tolerance and TCR are available through Stackpole or through distribution.
