For applications subject to high and repetitive surge pulses, devices in the AEC-Q200-qualified Vishay Draloric RCS e3 series offer superior pulse load performance and ESD surge characteristics when compared to standard chip resistors. In addition, the devices provide higher power ratings up to 0.4 W.

RCS e3 series resistors are available in three compact case sizes to save space on densely packed PCBs — 0402, 0603 and 0805. With its specified power of 0.25 W, the RCS0603 e3 resistor covers the power ratings of standard 0603, 0805 and 1206 resistors, allowing designers to standardize components and take advantage of the lower cost of smaller components.

The devices offer a resistance range from 1 Ω to 10 MΩ with tolerances of ± 0.5 %, ± 1 %, and ± 5 %; TCR of ± 100 ppm/K and ± 200 ppm/K; and an operating voltage range from 50 V to 150 V. The resistors operate over a temperature range of -55 °C to +155 °C, and are RoHS-compliant and halogen-free.

Samples and production quantities of the RCS e3 series are available now, with lead times of 10 weeks.
