- Buyers Guide
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.
To meet the demanding needs of pyrotechnic engineers, Vishay Intertechnology Inc. introduced a new massive electro-pyrotechnic ignitor chip (MEPIC) resistor offering Joule effect or flash ignition for fast firing times down to 250 µs.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced a new Power Metal Strip® battery shunt resistor featuring a molded enclosure with a four-pin connector. Providing easy PCB connection to the shunt resistor assembly, the WSBM8518 allows design engineers to focus on circuit development instead of PCB connection issues.
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.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced economical semipermanent solder-in probing solutions for its InfiniiMax III oscilloscope probing system. Engineers can use these accessories forhigh-speed digital system design, component design/characterization and differential serial bus measurements.
