Thin-Film Chip Resistors are Military Qualified

Wed, 06/30/2010 - 6:37am
PFC Series precision chip resistors Qualified to MIL-PRF-55342 specifications, PFC Series precision chip resistors from TT electronics IRC are now available in the 0402 package size.

"The 0402 military-qualified chip resistors complement our proven line of 0603, 0705, 1505 and 1206 PFC Series military-qualified precision thin film resistors," said Dr. Debasis Roy, director of TT electronics IRC's thin film business unit. "With the qualification of the 0402 package size, we are now able to offer our customers a complete line of MIL-PRF-55342-specified resistors to meet any size needs in a variety of military and aerospace applications."

The PFC Series thin film precision chip resistors meet all E, H, K and M MIL-PRF-55342 characteristics.

The PFC Series resistors are constructed using IRC's patented ultra stable Tantalum Nitride (TaNFilm(TM)) thin film resistive element for proven long life and high stability in harsh environments. The 0402 chip resistors are ideal for use in military and aerospace systems, weapon systems, and aircraft and communication equipment.

Resistance for the PFC Series thin film resistors ranges from 10 to 125KOhm. Power ratings are to 100mW, 150mW and 250mW, with voltage ratings of 50V, 100V and 125V, depending on package size. Tolerances are to ±0.1%, ±1%, ±2%, ±5% and ±10%. The PFC Series thin film chip resistors are qualified to C, M, P, R, S and T reliability levels.
