Outrigger Resistors offer Increased Power Dissipation

Smiths Interconnect CRH04091005F 100 ohm “Outrigger” resistor handles 1 Watt CW yet measures 1.02 x 2.29mmRFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for Smiths Interconnect “Outrigger” resistors. Patented technology allows 4 to 12 X power handling over conventional 0402 and 0603 size resistors for RF circuits up to 27 GHz. Outrigger resistors come standard in 50 and 100 ohm resistances with available values from 10 to 500 ohms for customer specific applications where increased power dissipation is critical. The CRH04091005F is a 100 ohm resistor capable of handling 1 Watt CW and up to 10 Watts of pulsed RF power yet measures only 1.02 x 2.29mm. Optimized for new designs using coplanar waveguide transmission lines, microstrip lines are also usable with proper design techniques.
