Vishay's thin film chip resistors are MIL-PRF-55342 qualified and provide established reliability for use in the military and aerospace industry. They feature all sputtered wraparound termination for excellent adhesion and dimensional uniformity. They are ideal in applications requiring stringent performance requirements. Established reliability is assured through 100% screening and extensive environmental lot testing. Wafer is sawed producing exact dimension and clean straight edges.

NOTE: Specification changed by DSCC from MIL-R-55342 to MIL-PRF-55342.

Vishay introduces a new series of QPL MIL-PRF-55342 qualified moisture resistant surface-mount chip resistors that provides reliability with an "R" level failure rate of 0.01 % per 1,000 hours. The new resistors offer enhanced specifications for military and aerospace applications, including tolerances to 0.1 % and TCR of 25 ppm/°C. The devices are offered in 12 case sizes from M55342/01 to M55342/12.
