Title Fixed resistors for use in electronic equipment - Part 8: Sectional specification - Fixed surface mount resistors
Project Number 21662
Abstract/Scope IEC 60115-8:2009(E) is applicable to fixed surface mount resistors for use in electronic equipment. These resistors are typically described according to types (different geometric shapes) and styles (different dimensions). They have metallized terminations and are primarily intended to be mounted directly on to a circuit board. This second edition constitutes a technical revision and includes test conditions and requirements for lead-free soldering and assessment procedures meeting the requirements of a 'zero defect' approach. The major technical changes with regard to the first edition are the following: - introduction of a product classification based on application requirements; - extension of the list of styles and dimensions; - use of an extended scope of stability class definitions; - extension of the lists of preferred values of ratings; - inclusion of test conditions and requirements for lead-free soldering, for periodic overload and for resistance to electrostatic discharge (ESD); - inclusion of a new set of severities for a shear test; - inclusion of definitions for a test board; - replacement of assessment level E and possible others by the sole assessment level EZ, meeting the requirements of a 'zero defect' approach; - inclusion of an extended endurance test, a flammability test, a temperature rise test, vibration tests, an extended rapid change of temperature test, and a single pulse high-voltage overload test; - inclusion of requirements applicable to 0 resistors (jumpers).

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
