Stackpole Electronics (Raleigh, NC) offers the RPC Series of surface mount chips that offer pulse withstanding in a 5% tolerance part. It is completely untrimmed, which allows the entire width of the resistance element to dissipate the pulse power without any current crowding. The thick film chip resistors are suitable for applications requiring low cost high pulse handling capability including many types of low to medium power supplies, medical applications, and imaging systems. They are available in tape and
reel packaging in quantities that vary depending on size.
