RCD Offers Worlds Smallest Thin Film Surface Mount Resistor

Manchester, New Hampshire (USA) – RCD Components, a leading manufacturer of Resistors, Coils, and Delay lines has announced the release of their ‘0201’size thin-film surface mount resistor. RCD’s new chip measures only 0.02” long X 0.01” wide, designated BLU0201 (Ultra Precision Thin-Film) is the smallest known thin-film in the industry.

RCD understands the need for smaller ultra precision surface mounts, until now the industry was forced to use much larger sizes. We’re now able to offer ultra precision in the smallest resistor sizes, formerly this size was only available in a ‘less precise’ thick-film variety.

RCD’s type ‘BLU0201’ offers a performance level unattainable in thick-film chips, designed specifically for demanding precision surface mount applications. Available in a wide resistance range from 33W to 22KW, and tolerances from 0.1% to 5% makes this part suitable for almost all applications. Combining RCD’s expertise in the field of ultra-precision resistors, with the latest in automated chip resistor production, enables their pricing to be comparable with conventional precision leaded resistors. Typical pricing is less than $.25 each in production volumes.
