Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has extended its MC series of professional and precision thin film chip resistors with lower ohmic values in the compact 0402 and 0603 case sizes. The enhanced devices are designed to deliver stable performance for a wide range of electronic systems.
In the 0402 case size, the professional and precision series now offer resistance down to 10 ohms and 100 ohms, respectively, for all TCR / tolerance combinations. In the 0603 case size, the professional series features lower resistance down to 1 ohm for TCRs of 50 ppm/K and 25 ppm/K with a 0.5 % tolerance.
The Vishay Beyschlag resistors are ideal for applications in which reliability and stability are a major concern, including industrial electronics such as sensors, scales, bridges, and precision amplifiers; automotive electronics including engine control units, gearbox controls, body electronics, and safety, power supply, and braking systems; battery management, measurement control, and steering technology; telecommunication base stations; and medical equipment.
Providing high-temperature performance, professional series devices combine high rated dissipation at 70 °C to 400 mW with an operating temperature to +155 °C. Offering an advanced level of stability, precision series devices offer low tolerance down to 0.1 % and low TCR down to 10 ppm/K.
MC series resistors are approved according to EN140401-801. RoHS-compliant, the devices are suitable for processing on automatic SMD assembly systems and for automatic soldering using wave, reflow, or vapor phase.
Samples and production quantities of the MC series resistors are available now, with lead times of six weeks for larger orders. Typical pricing for U.S. delivery is $0.03 per piece, depending on TCR tolerance and quantity.
