Thick-film chip resistor doubles the power in same case size

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has enhanced the Vishay Draloric RCC1206 e3 thick-film chip Resistor in the 1206 case size with a higher power rating of 0.5 W. By offering twice the power of a standard device in this size, the RCC1206 e3 can replace two parallel 1206 devices or a single device in the larger 1210 case size.

Thick-film chip resistor doubles the power in same case sizeThis saves board space in automotive, industrial, telecommunications, and medical applications, while lowering component counts and reducing placement costs, said Vishay.

Key specifications include an operating voltage of 200 V, a resistance range from 1 Ω to 1 MΩ — and 0 Ω jumper — with tolerances of ±1% and ±5% and a temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) of ±100 ppm/K and ±200 ppm/K. The operating temperature range  is -55°C to 155°C.

The thick-film chip Resistor is AEC-Q200 qualified, Rohs compliant, and halogen-free. It is suitable for processing ON automatic assembly systems for wave, reflow, or vapor phase soldering per IEC 61760-1.

Samples and production quantities of the RCC1206 e3 are available now, with lead times of 10 weeks. Pricing for U.S. delivery starts at $0.0111 each in quantities of 100,000.

The RCCxxxx e3 series also is available in 0402, 0603, 0805 case sizes. They offer a resistance range of 1 Ω to 10 MΩ with Voltage ratings of 75 V, 150 V, and 200 V, respectively.
