Zero-Ohm Resistors Receive Mil-Spec Qualification

State of the Art Inc. (SOTA), a manufacturer of high-reliability resistive products, has been granted qualification by the Defense Department (DSCC; Columbus, Ohio) for the new MIL-PRF-32159 ZERO OHM chip resistor. The new specification provides zero-ohm jumpers at three product levels: Space level T (including 100% burn-in), established reliability product level M and industrial product level C.

Military grade jumpers are available in 13 case sizes with solderable, wire bondable and epoxy bondable termination finishes, and are identical to the company’s MIL-PRF-55342 product. SOTA has been manufacturing the zero-ohm jumper resistor for more than 25 years, and has extensive experience with high reliability testing and applications for these devices. Pricing is under $1.00 in production quantities.
