RALEIGH, NC (Apr. 18, 2017) – Stackpole’s popular HCS series is fully compliant with AEC-Q200. AEC-Q200 requires the resistors to have an operating temperature range of -55°C to +150°C and survive a wide range of electrical and mechanical stress tests. These tests include exposure to high temperatures, temperature cycling, high temperature operational life, biased humidity, ESD, board flex, and terminal strength. Components qualified to AEC-Q200 provide engineers additional assurance that they are designing in a robust and reliable component. In addition, the raised resistance element offers lower thermal resistance meaning lower PCB temperatures and easier implementation for high current usage.

The HCS is a good choice for all types of high power supplies and power modules, electric motor controls, fuel powered engine controls, DC to DC converters in switching power supplies, frequency converters, voltage regulators, portable power management and battery monitoring.

Pricing for the HCS varies with size, tolerance, and resistance value. Contact Stackpole or one of our franchised distribution partners for volume pricing.
