Resistors and Terminations

Low and high power RF resistors and terminations including surface mount chips, tab & cover chips, flange mounted and rod types. These resistors are available with Alumina, ALN, BeO and CVD substrate materials. The  CTX Series of high frequency wire bondable chip terminations, HR-CTX Series of high frequency high reliability wire bondable chip terminations and CTX SMT Series of high frequency surface mount chip terminations are optimized to combine high frequency, and power in a small package.

Features & Benefits

Choose from a variety of metallization finishes for easy mounting to a heat sink or directly to the printed circuit board.  Typical finishes include: Lead-free, RoHS compliant plating (silver or gold), solder finish with SN63 or solder fused finish with SN63 depending upon package type. Select from bulk, tape & reel, or waffle packaging, again, depending upon resistor package style.
