IMS offers a full range of products to meet the specific needs of the electronic design community. Thick and thin film resistors, attenuators, splitter, couples and thermal management devices are available in a wide range of tolerances and sizes. Customers looking for precision, quality, non-ferroresonant, RoHS compliant, high power and small size will find a full complement of resistor and attenuator solutions for applications. Not only does IMS offer short lead times on catalog items, some products are even available for same day shipping. In 2010, IMS introduced non-magnetic ultra leach resistant (ULR) metallization for their alumina substrate products, providing 150% greater leach resistance than nickel barrier. Additionally, IMS originated the ThermaBridgeTM, a thermal transfer device designed to transport heat from one location to another, for which they won the EN-Genius Network Product of the Year Award in 2008. If the standard offerings do not match the intended specifications, IMS employs a highly qualified engineering staff that will work with customer requirements to develop a custom solution. Staying on the forefront of product design and manufacturing is what IMS does best and they are prepared to meet the challenges coming from advanced technologies and future innovation in the electronics design industry.
