Stackpole Expands High Voltage Solution in More Case Sizes

November 30, 2010 by Jeff Shepard

Stackpole’s RVC Series has expanded to include 0402 size chips with a working voltage of 100V, twice that of standard thick film chip resistors. This expansion provides a low cost solution for high voltage requirements across most standard case sizes. According to the company, until now, design engineers had to choose between a high-performance, high-cost resistor to meet the voltage requirements in a single resistor or lining up low-cost resistors in series to handle the voltage.

The RVC Series allows engineers to handle voltages up to 3kV in a single 2512 discrete resistor at a fraction of the cost. The RVC 2010 can withstand voltages of 2kV.

The RVC series is available in sizes from 0402 to 2512, resistance values from 10Ω to 100Meg.Ω, with 1 and 5% tolerances standard. Pricing varies with size, tolerance, and resistance value and ranges from $0.035 to $0.22 each in full reel quantities.
