New Yorker announces release of VPG’s new RWX / APR foil resistor series

New Yorker Electronics has announced VPG Foil Resistors’ new release of its RWX wraparound foil resistors. These high-precision, stable Bulk Metal® Foil resistors are AEC-Q200 qualified have resistance tolerances up to ±0.01% and are available in MIL-PRF-55342 or ALPHA Typical.

With an operating temperature rating of -65°C to +155°C, this new VPG Series is available in three types. The RWAX is 1.6mm x 0.8mm and is rated at 22V, the RWBX is 2.0mm x 1.25mm and rated at 45V the RWCX is 3.2mm x 1.6mm and has a 95V max working voltage rating. They are available in 0603, 0805 and 1206 packages.

The RWAX (1.6±0.2 x 0.8±0.2) has a rated power of 0.1W and a TCR of 0±6 ppm/°C with a resistance range of 100Ω to 5kΩ and 1kΩ to 5kΩ. The RWBX is rated at 0.2W with a TCR of 0±10 (30Ω to 100Ω) and 0±5 (1kΩ to 10kΩ). The third in the series, the RWCX, has a rated power of 0.3W and a TCR of 0±10 ppm/°C (30Ω to 100Ω) and 0±5 in 100Ω to 30kΩ. 

The RWX is part of VPG Foil Resistor’s high-performance APR product line, a new platform of standardised precision resistors that are made-to-stock and available on short delivery. VPG’s new APR product line addresses market demands of trending applications like 5G or EV Charging equipment to provide off-the-shelf, A+ class, standard surface-mount resistors in tape & reel packaging and power current-sense resistors with resistance values. According to VPG Foil Resistors, the new APR has taken high-precision resistors to a new level which is now standardised and affordable to all. 

Designed and manufactured in VPG’s fully automated plant in Japan, the MOQ is 100 and New Yorker Electronics can advise on how the RWX Series can meet the specific design applications. As a franchised distributor, New Yorker Electronics supplies VPG Foil Power Current Sensor, Hermetically Sealed, High-Temperature, Trimmer and Military & Space resistors.
