Vishay Intertechnology introduces a new series of thick film surface-mount chip resistors featuring four-terminal Kelvin connections and high power ratings of 0.33 W in the compact 0306 case size. Offering a power density over 3.3x higher than standard devices in the 0603 footprint, Vishay Dale RCWK0306 series resistors are designed to save space and reduce component counts in telecommunications, computer, industrial, and consumer applications.
• Can be used instead of larger high power components or multiple lower power devices
• Reduce board space requirements and placement costs, while enabling smaller and lighter end products
• Provide higher reliability than larger thick film devices by reducing the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) mismatch with the PCB, thereby lowering solder joint stress
• Four-terminal Kelvin connection enables greater measurement accuracy
