IMS Introduces Non-Magnetic Chip Resistors with Ultra Leach Resistant Terminals for MRI Applications

International Manufacturing Services, Inc. (IMS), a leading manufacturer of high quality thick film resistors, terminations, attenuators, couplers, thermal management devices, planar dividers and planar filters to the electronics industry, has introduced a new type or chip resistor terminal which are non-magnetic and ultra leach resistant.

The Ultra Leach Resistant (ULR) type terminals have been proven to maintain their integrity in the harshest solder environments, including high temperature and multiple reflows, withstanding up to 15 minutes at 260°C. The ULR metallization gives customers ultimate solder leach resistance without the need for ferro-resonant Nickel Barrier terminals. The leach resistance of ULR type terminals is far superior to Ni-Barrier at a lower cost than Copper Barrier components.

These rugged terminals are available in RoHS and lead content versions on resistor sizes 0402 to 6227, values 1? to 1T? and operating frequency to 40GHz. Chip resistors with ULR terminals are ideal for any application including, but not limited to, MRI Coils, NMR imaging and cryogenics. More information and samples of resistors with the new ULR terminals are available by visiting or contacting the factory.

Since 1974, IMS has been supplying the electronics manufacturing industries with highest quality thick and thin film chip resistors, terminations, attenuators, couplers, thermal management devices and other RF and Microwave components.
