Vishay Intertechnology has enhanced the Vishay Draloric RCC1206 e3 thick film chip Resistor in the 1206 case size with a higher power rating of 0.5W.

Providing double the power of standard thick film chip resistors in this size, the device can be employed in place of two parallel 1206 devices or a single device in the larger 1210 case size. This enables designers to save board space in automotive, industrial, telecommunications, and medical applications while reducing component counts and decreasing placement costs.

AEC-Q200 qualified, the device provides a resistance range from 1Ohm to 1MOhm – and 0Ohm jumper – with tolerances of ±1% and ±5% and TCR of ±100ppm/K and ±200ppm/K. The resistor provides an operating voltage of 200V and an operating temperature range of -55C to +155C. RoHS-compliant and halogen-free, the device is ideal for processing on automatic assembly systems and for wave, reflow, or vapour phase soldering per IEC 61760-1.
