RS Components today announced a new global franchise agreement with Yageo, a world leader in passive components.
A key product type now immediately available from RS is Yageo’s extensive portfolio of chip resistors, including general-purpose thick-film components and thin-film high-precision high-stability resistors; automotive-grade components; current sensing devices; resistor array networks; high-voltage and surge resistors; RF attenuators; and sulphur-resistant devices.
Founded in 1977, Yageo is a world-class provider of passive components including commodity and speciality versions of resistors, capacitors and wireless components that target a diverse range of applications across multiple markets, including industrial, alternative/renewable energy, medical, automotive and consumer devices such as mobiles and tablets. Listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange since October 1993 and with sales and production facilities located globally, the company currently ranks as the global leader in chip resistors and number three in MLCC capacitors.
“This is a major global franchise agreement that means our passive component portfolio really steps up a gear,” said Andy Keenan, Vice President Product Management for Board Level Electronics at RS. “Bringing on board a world-leading maker in the form of Yageo solidifies our position of major source of chip resistors and other passive devices, providing engineers and members of our DesignSpark community with a further alternative source of these important components.”
