The RHC2512 from Stackpole Electronics Inc. utilizes unique materials, design, and processing to offer very low thermal resistance. The RHC will typically show a heat rise of 60°C per watt compared to standard 2512 devices that can experience more than 120°C per watt.
In addition to low thermal resistance, the RHC2512 is stable at high power and high temperatures. This improved stability is demonstrated by the lower resistance shifts over load life and overload testing. This high power performance is suitable for power electronic and control applications such as buck converters, HUD systems, IR goggles, HVAC controls, audio controls, and motor and pump controls. Pricing for the RHC2512 depends on resistance value and tolerance and ranges from $0.19 to $0.32 each in full reel quantities.
