Wilbrecht LEDCO Surface Mount Resistors Earn DSCC Approval

St. Paul, MN—May 28, 2013—Wilbrecht LEDCO, Inc., a subsidiary of Microprecision Electronics SA, announces that its surface-mount resistors have received Defense Supply Center, Columbus (DSCC) approval. The Bulk Metal® Foil surface mount resistors are manufactured based on Vishay Precision Group (VPG) technology. The DSCC, part of the Defense Logistics Agency, uses the approvals to identify suppliers who demonstrate their products have met specific performance, quality and reliability levels. 

Surface Mount Resistors

Wilbrecht LEDCO is an approved DSCC Vendor for its Bulk Metal Foil surface mount resistors, commercial models VSM and VSMP (Z-Foil) that are tested to MIL-PRF-55342. These resistors are available in five different sizes (between 0805 and 2512) and are constructed to consistently meet strict low temperature coefficients (TCR) and tight absolute tolerances. Bulk Metal Foil resistors supplied by Wilbrecht LEDCO offer a TCR of ±0.2 ppm/°C over the range −55°C to +125°C and resistance tolerance to 0.01%. The resistors offer load life stability to ±0.005% at 70°C, thermal stabilization time <1 s (nominal value achieved within 10 ppm of steady state value), and electrostatic discharge (ESD) at least to 25 kV.

Through-Hole Resistors

The company was also named as a qualified vendor on the DSCC’s Qualified Products List (QPL) for its Bulk Metal Foil through-hole resistors, series WQ, WT, WS and WZ. The metal foil ultra-precision resistors are designed to meet the most stringent temperature and drift stability requirements. They are also built to MIL-PRF-55182/9 specifications and are listed in the Qualified Products Database for RNC90 by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).

Centrally located in Huron, SD, the Wilbrecht LEDCO QPL-certified manufacturing plant is also a Vishay Precision Group authorized precision center and will trim, test and ship these Bulk Metal Foil resistors in smaller quantities and selected values within five days to meet the ever-increasing short lead times required for new product design and development.
