Production of the CMB 0207 specialty MELF resistor is
strictly controlled and follows an extensive set of
instructions established for reproducibility. A homogeneous
and dense carbon film is deposited on a high grade ceramic
body (Al2O3). Nickel plated steel termination caps are firmly
pressed on the coated rods. Products with a resistance of
15 or lower are made without trimming, whereas a special
laser is used to achieve a target value of 16 or above
by smoothly cutting a helical groove in the resistive layer
without damaging the ceramics. The resistor elements are
covered by a protective coating designed for electrical,
mechanical and climatic protection. The terminations
receive a final pure matte tin on nickel plating. Four or five
color code rings designate the resistance value and
tolerance in accordance with IEC 60062 (1).
The result of the determined production is verified by an
extensive testing procedure performed on 100 % of the
individual resistors. Only accepted products are laid directly
into the blister tape in accordance with IEC 60286-3,
Type 2a (1).
The resistors are suitable for processing on automatic SMD
assembly systems. They are suitable for automatic
soldering using wave, reflow or vapor phase as shown in
IEC 61760-1 (1). Solderability is specified for 2 years after
production or requalification, however, excellent
solderability is proven after extended storage in excess of
10 years. The permitted storage time is 20 years.
The resistors are completely lead (Pb)-free, the pure matte
tin plating provides compatibility with lead (Pb)-free
soldering processes. The immunity of the plating against tin
whisker growth has been proven under extensive testing.
The encapsulation is resistant to all cleaning solvents
commonly used in the electronics industry, including
alcohols, esters and aqueous solutions. The suitability of
conformal coatings, potting compounds and their
processes, if applied, shall be qualified by appropriate
means to ensure the long-term stability of the whole system.
