The RPC Series from Stackpole offers outstanding pulse handling in a thick film chip resistor. In addition to handling much higher pulse power than same sized commodity thick film chip, the RPC Series is also rated for surge withstanding per IEC 60115-1 up to 5.5KV. This makes the high resistance values of the RPC Series a good choice for a variety of applications where brief high voltages may damage the power supply or control circuitry. The RPC Series is available in sizes from 0603 through 2512, with tolerances as low as 1%. Pricing is size, resistance value, and tolerance dependent and ranges from $0.031 to $0.194 each in full reel quantities. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distributor partners for volume pricing. Many popular sizes and values are currently in stock. Stackpole
