State of the Art Inc. (SOTA) announces the offering of their Z termination line of miniature, high reliability chip resistors. Thin film single surface and wrap around designs. The resistors range in size form 0402 (0.040" x 0.020") to 2512 (0.025" x 0.025"), with tolerances from 0.1 percent, power ratings from 50 to 1500 mW temperature coefficients of resistance as low as 25 ppm, and voltage ratings from 30 to 200 V. The operating range for these resistors is from -55° to + 125°C.

The Z Termination is a gold over nickel finish which can be attached with solder, conductive epoxy, or gold wire bonds. The Z termination resistors are a RoHS compliant product. Reliability is assured by extensive in house testing - users can select from a wide variety of testing options. These include standard  product, Mil-PRF 55342 established reliability (R or S level), or space level to Mil-PRF-55342 “T” product level. Custom testing to customer specifications is also available.

SOTA chip resistors are designed for use in a wide range of high reliability applications including medical electronics, defense systems, microwave communications, aerospace electronics, and satellite systems.

Pricing is generally under $1.50 in manufacturing quantities. Current lead time is 8 weeks, but SOTA maintains more than 50 million resistors in stock. Delivery on stock items is 2 business days ARO.
