Thin and thick film resistive product series optimized for 4W to 800W

June 19, 2012 // By Julien Happich
AVX' series of thin and thick film resistive products is optimized for maximum power handling and low voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR).

The series, which includes high-power resistors, terminations, and attenuators, features power handling from 4W to 800W, and is available in a variety of sizes and termination styles, including flange, leaded, and surface mount. Processed using thin film (sputter) technology to guarantee consistent quality, the high-power resistive product series has undergone rigorous product qualification testing (per MIL PRF55342) and is ROHS compliant. The resistors in the series provide consistent values ranging from 10 to 200 Ohms (standard is 50 Ohms and 100 Ohms; consult factory for higher resistance custom designs). Additionally, the series includes several BeO-free resistors, terminations, and attenuators, which feature advanced 100% thin film process, aluminum nitride substrates and a power rating of 4W to 250W.
