Vishay Foil Resistors - Military And Space


Military and Space (MIL) style testing features a combination of electrical and environmental stresses and forms a vital part of the production process of resistors. MIL style testing is essential to screen out and identify any elements that display variations in their performances. The level of testing varies depending on how critical the circuit is to the overall objective of the project.


To qualify parts to MIL specification, continuous testing of the production process is carried out and the results sent to the Defence Supply Centre of Columbus (DSCC); the DSCC maintains a collection of qualified military specifications.


Further details regarding MIL specifications are available on our website.
