Vishay Precision Group Inc. unveiled a new demonstration video that shows the actual process by which the company's Vishay Foil Resistors (VFR) brand is able to ship samples of Bulk Metal® Foil precision resistors within any resistance value within a 0.01% tolerance within one to five days.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. introduced the industry's first wirebondable thin film chip resistors with compact 40 x 40 mil (1 x 1 mm) footprints to feature high resistance to 100 MΩ. The new CS44 <http://www.vishay.com/doc?60114> series features low TCR down to ± 50 ppm/°C and tolerances to ± 0.5 %.
Vishay Precision Group Inc. announced that its Vishay Foil Resistors (VFR) brand has released a new video that compares the stability and accuracy of three different current sense precision resistor technologies used in solar panels: thick film, metal band, and next-generation Bulk Metal® Z-Foil. The short video demonstrates how an increase in ambient temperature results in a change in accuracy and stability in thick film and metal band resistors; but has no effect on the Z-Foil resistor.
Vishay Precision Group Inc. announced that the company has opened a new Vishay Foil Resistors (VFR) Precision Center within Digi-Key Corp., a global full-service provider of both prototype/design and production-quality electronic components. Digi-Key can now build and ship VFR surface-mount precision resistors — with no minimum quantities — in 24 to 48 hours, including VFR's popular new Bulk Metal® Foil VSMP (Z-Foil Technology) and VSM series resistors.
Ohmega Technologies has introduced OhmegaPly® MTR™ Technology, which allows thin film resistors to be built within a printed circuit trace that is less than 100 microns (0.004”) wide. Using standard subtractive printed circuit board processes, it is ideal for high density interconnect (HDI) designs where passive component placement is difficult or impossible.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. introduced a new series of axial cemented wirewound resistors that are the industry's first to offer a customized high-voltage surge withstanding capability up to 12 kV.
International Manufacturing Services Inc. (IMS) introduces its line of HVI Series chip resistors especially suited for high voltage applications.
