Digi-Key and resistor manufacturer Riedon have entered into a distribution agreement in which Digi-Key stocks Riedon’s 15-W and 30-W Manganin foil resistors. The resistors have a 1% tolerance, are available in TO-220, SMD TO-220 and TO-218 packages, and range in value from 0.005 Ω to 50 Ω.
"Riedon is delighted to have signed a global distribution agreement with Digi-Key" said Gary Cavagnaro, Riedon's vice president of sales. "Our Manganin foil offering is a unique and great first product for our companies to work together on, as it offers the best combination of low ohmic values, tight tolerances and lowest TCR of any TO package offered in the market today. With Digi-Key's global sales channel and our extensive resistive product offering, we see significant opportunities for growth coming from this agreement."
