Riverside, California – Bourns is pleased to announce the introduction of its new sulfur-resistant AEC-Q200 compliant thick film chip resistor series. This new surface mount series helps strengthen the already broad range of surface mount chip resistors being offered by Bourns.
The new sulfur-resistant AEC-Q200 compliant Model CRxxxxA-AS chip resistor series is available in eight different footprints from small 0201 (0603 metric) to 2512 (6432 metric) and offers rated power from 0.05 to 1 watt.
The Model CRxxxxA-AS Series has a wide resistance range from 1 ohm to 20 megohms and is designed for general purpose applications.These resistors are made using a thick film element printed onto a ceramic substrate, tested in accordance with ASTM B809-95 methods and are designed to operate in certain harsh environments exposed to high levels of sulfur contamination.This new product family complements the other circuit conditioning components that Bourns offers such as power inductors and rectifier diodes.
