Abstract : Processing of resistor groups in values up to 10,000 ohms has been completed and the 24,000 ohms unit partially completed for the ceramic slug resistors. The 130 ohms, 1000 ohms and 10,000 ohms units are on test and an analysis of the partial performance data is included. To date, no serious problem areas have been encountered. The testing of 12 glaze resistor groups has been completed and the results were generally favorable. Some difficulty was experienced in breaking units due to mechanical clamping in the moisture resistance fixture. This has been corrected through modification of the test procedure. Failure analysis was initiated on the units failing the prescribed tests. The failures were X-rayed and the defects noted. The analysis is continuing. (Author)
