Lead-free array prepares for future RoHS exemptions
Industrial, automotive and medical application designers can meet tomorrow’s regulations using the GBCN resistors which have been added to TT Electronics’ Green Thick-Film Chip series, says the company.
The GBCN is a thick-film chip array that is completely free of Pb (lead) and its compounds.
As environmental regulations become increasingly stringent, the GBCN series deliver peace of mind through exemption-free RoHS compliance. These resistors meet growing industry demand for pull-up, pull-down, level shift and termination functions in digital circuits and compact analogue circuits found in demanding equipment such as process controllers, body control modules and medical devices.
“TT Electronics is committed to providing our customers future-proof designs that remove reliance on RoHS exemptions,” said Barry Peters, vice president of product management and engineering, TT Electronics. “GBCN and the rest of our Green portfolio enable OEMs to safeguard their system design investments and avoid time-consuming re-spins or, worse, extensive design alterations.”
The single component, AEC-Q200-qualified resistors contain an array of four isolated resistor elements in a compact 1206 total footprint. According to TT Electronics’ this results in faster assembly. The GBCN joins the Green Thick Film series, the GHVC (Green Thick-Film High-Voltage Resistor) and GWCR (Green Thick-Film Chip Resistor).
TT Electronics provides engineered electronics for performance critical applications. It has nearly 5,000 staff members operating from 29 key locations around the world, to design and manufacture a wide range of electronics for sensing, power management and connectivity for applications in the industrial, medical, aerospace and defence and transportation sectors.
