CVD Diamond Resistors

Our exclusive line of CVD Diamond resistors offers a unique combination of extreme high power ratings in very small packages. These resistors may be used in applications from DC to 26.5 GHz and are ideal for applications with requirements for high power capability, broad frequency response and small, light-weight size. The Diamond chip resistors are manufactured using all thin film construction and have a gold finish that is both wire bondable and solderable. This total thin film construction also makes them ideal for peak power applications. The W2 units are set up for high volume pick and place surface mounting. The “T” units have a gold plated copper tab for ease of installation. The “FT” series units are equipped with a gold plated copper tab and integrated heat sink for ease of mounting. Standard available values are 50 & 100 ohms.  Contact us directly for non-standard resistance values.
Because of their total thin film construction they are ideal for peak power applications.  Standard chip and high reliability tested versions based on Mil-PRF-55342 are also available. Select from tape and reel or waffle packaging. These products are lead free, RoHS complaint and S-level approved.
