New Yorker Electronics has announced Vishay’s release of its newly enhanced Vishay Draloric RCS0805 e3 anti-surge thick film resistor in the 0805 case size with a higher power rating of 0.5W. With its increased power rating, the RCS0805 e3 can now be used in place of four standard parallel resistors in the 0805 case size; two parallel devices in the larger 1206 case size; or one resistor in the 1210 case size. This allows designers to save board space in automotive, industrial, telecommunications, and medical applications, while lowering component counts and reducing placement costs. The Vishay RCS0805 excels in applications that are subject to high and repetitive surge pulses.

For applications subject to high and repetitive surge pulses, the resistor also offers superior pulse load performance and ESD surge characteristics when compared to standard chip resistors. AEC-Q200 qualified, the RCS0805 e3 features a resistance range from 1 Ω to 10 MΩ — and 0 Ω jumper — with tolerances of ± 0.5 %, ± 1 %, and ± 5 %, and TCR of ± 100 ppm/K and ± 200 ppm/K. The resistor offers an operating voltage of 150 V and an operating temperature range of -55 °C to +155 °C.
