What the heck does that resistor part number mean?

Garrett Electronics can help you decipher electronic
component part numbers such as KOA thin film resistors.

Manufacturer’s part numbers are often lengthy and confusing.  What do all those letters and numbers signify?  To determine if the manufacturer makes the resistor value you need with the specifications you require and in the size you want is often like searching for a needle in a haystack.  Garrett Electronics’ knowledgeable sales team can help you understand manufacturer’s part numbers to simplify and expedite your purchasing projects.

Following is my third blog post regarding manufacturer’s part numbers to help you find the surface mount, ultra precision, thin film resistors you need. You may also call and speak with me or one of Garrett Electronics’ knowledgeable sales team, email sales@garrettelec.com, or visit our website at http://www.garrettelec.com

One of our most popular products from KOA Speer Electronics is the surface mount, ultra precision, thin film chip resistor, Series RN73.  Following is information to interpret KOA’s part number for this series:

Garrett Provides Factory Traceability on All Shipments

Traceability \ tras-a-bil-et-e \ adj 1: the ability to trace the factory origin of a component through the manufacturer’s part number, lot number and date code. 


According to Webster’s dictionary traceability is not a word.  According to Garrett Electronics traceability is a very important word!

As an authorized distributor, Garrett Electronics provides the manufacturer’s part number, lot number and date code on every packing slip, parts label and invoice, for ALL shipments including partial reels, cut tape and bulk components.
Contact Garrett's knowledgeable sales staff at 800-767-0081, sales@garrettelec.com or visit our website at www.garrettelec.com

What the heck does that capacitor part number mean?

Garrett Electronics can help you decipher electronic component part numbers such as AVX surface mount MLC capacitors.

Manufacturer’s part numbers are often lengthy and confusing.  What do all those letters and numbers signify?  To determine if the manufacturer makes the capacitor value you need with the specifications you require and in the size you want is often like searching for a needle in a haystack.  Garrett Electronics’ knowledgeable sales team can help you understand manufacturer’s part numbers to simplify and expedite your purchasing projects.

Following is my second blog post regarding manufacturer’s part numbers to help you find the surface mount, multilayer ceramic capacitors you need.  You may also call and speak with me or one of Garrett Electronics’ knowledgeable sales team, email sales@garrettelec.com, or visit our website at http://www.garrettelec.com
