VPG announced that its Powertron resistor brand has introduced the first seven devices in its S Series of precision foil current sense resistors. Offering a TCR of ±2 ppm/°C — the industry's lowest for high-power current shunts — the SHR, SHS, SNR, and SPR devices provide power ratings to 80 W in a variety of epoxy packages.
New VPG ultra-high-precision Z1-foil wrap-around chip resistors tested per EEE-INST-002 and MIL-PRF-55342
Vishay Precision Group Inc. announced that its Vishay Foil Resistors brand (VFR) has introduced a new series of military-qualified, ultra-high-precision Z1-Foil wrap-around chip resistors. Tested per EEE-INST-002 (Tables 2A and 3A, Film/Foil, Level 1) and MIL-PRF-55342, devices in the 303261 - 303266 seriesprovide exceptional load-life stability of ±0.0025% typical after rated power at 70°C for 2,000 hours, low nominal TCR of ±0.2 ppm/°C from -55°C to +125°C, +25°C ref., PCR (ΔR due to self heating) of 5 ppm at rated power, and tight tolerances to ±0.02%.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced that the company is now offering laboratory sample kits of its automotive-grade precision thin film chip resistors. The MCW 0406 AT (LCW AT 96/4) and MCT 0603 AT (LCT AT 96/4) kits aid engineers in prototyping, and speed time to market in a wide range of electronic systems.
