Miniature, thin film precision chip resistors in distribution

August 15, 2013 // By EDN
Distributor Rutronik now holds the RT0201, Yageo's smallest thin film precision chip resistor. The component features an excellent temperature coefficient as well as enhanced stability for audio, telecommunications, medical, industrial test and measurement.

Use the RT0201 in applications or designs requiring tight tolerance, low noise, accuracy and reliability; it is built on Yageo’s lithography and thin film technology, and is constructed out of a high grade ceramic body. The resistive material, nickel chromium (NiCr) is sputtered on the top side of the substrate. In order to meet the increasing demands for compact design and integrated function requirements, Yageo’s RT0201 thin film precision chip resistor comes with a rated power of 0.05W, a superior temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) as low as ±10ppm/°C, and precision tolerances of down to ±0.05%, resistance range from 22 Ω to 22 kΩ. It also provides high reliability (40°C/95%RH, 1000hr ΔR<±0.5%), high heat resistance (155°C, 1000hr ΔR±0.5%) and tight resistance tolerances (±0.05%, ±0.1%, ±0.25%, ±0.5% and ±1%).
