Keystone Electronics Corp. has released a new series of true Zero-ohm high current SMT jumpers designed to replace Zero-ohm resistors. Designed for quick and easy set-up, these jumpers are suited as true zero-ohm resistor replacements without the need to change board designs or layouts. Keystone is offering four resistor chip sizes to simplify designs and footprint template compatibility: 0402 chip size, Cat. # 5112; 0603 chip size, Cat. #5110; 0805 chip size, Cat. #5106, and 1206 chip size, Cat. #5108.
Manufactured from copper with silver plating, these jumpers provide a low impedance and circuit linkage with an identical footprint as a zero-ohm resistor. They were designed for high-density, high current PCB applications, these Jumpers are supplied on tape and reel per ANSI/EIA-481 standards for compatibility with most vacuum and mechanical pick and place assembly systems.
