Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced a new surface-mount Power Metal Strip® resistor featuring a wide side terminal construction that yields a high 2 W power rating in the compact 1020 case size. The WSL1020 combines its high power-to-footprint-size ratio with extremely low resistance values down to 0.003 Ω and stable resistance tolerances to 0.5 percent.
International Manufacturing Services Inc. (IMS), a manufacturer of high quality thick film resistors, terminations, attenuators, couplers, thermal management devices, planar dividers and planar filters to the electronics industry, has introduced a new type of chip resistor terminal which are non-magnetic and ultra leach resistant.
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.
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 %.
The CSRF series from Stackpole is a foil on ceramic carrier technology that can achieve lower resistance values than thick film technology and offers excellent TCR of as low as 50 ppm. The CSRF0805 is rated at 0.5 W and is available in resistance values from 10 up to 100 milliohms, in 1 and 5 percent tolerances.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. introduced a new series of radial-leaded, positive temperature coefficient (PTC) thermistors. Devices in the new TFPTL <http://www.vishay.com/doc?33027> series feature nickel thin film elements with positive temperature coefficients of + 4110 ppm/K, fast response time of < 2 s, and high stability over a wide temperature range from - 55 to + 150 °C.
