IRC chip resistors earn S-level failure rating

Engineers at International Resistive Co. Inc. of Corpus Christi, Texas, are offering thin film chip resistors with reliability that meets "S"-level of MIL-PRF-55342, meaning these device fail only 0.001 percent of the time of every 1,000 hours of operation. These resistors come in E, H, and K characteristics in 0805 and 1206 sizes. The "S"-level qualification means IRC "is firmly committed to our military, space, and high-reliability customers," says Steve Wade, director of IRC sales and marketi
