Stackpole's RNCP thin film chip resistor series offers both high power ratings and anti-sulfur capability. Unlike thick film resistors, the RNCP Series doesn't require a lead containing dielectric glass, providing customers with a RoHS-compliant solution without exemptions. Comparable thick film solutions require higher cost dielectric or no dielectric, which provides a part that is 100% lead-free but typically results in poorer long-term reliability and stability. The RNCP Series provides a low cost, reliable thin film solution for high volume products by incorporating high-speed manufacturing processes.
The RNCP Series is available in the following sizes and power ratings:
- 0402 = 0.1 Watt
- 0603 = 0.125 Watt
- 0805 = 0.25 Watt
- 1206 = 0.5 Watt
Pricing for the RNCP Series varies depending on size and tolerance and ranges from $0.002 to $0.01 in full reel quantities.
