Passive Plus Inc. (PPI), is proud to announce it has launched an updated website that presents the website visitor with more comprehensive and detailed information about the RF/Microwave components it provides including detailed information on High-Q /Low ESR capacitors, kits, and modeling data, along with Non-Magnetic/Diamond Resistors. A newly restructured online-store offers the visitor the opportunity to purchase capacitors with a credit card, 24 hours/7 days a week.
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.
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.
International Manufacturing Services Inc. (IMS) introduces its line of HVI Series chip resistors especially suited for high voltage applications.
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.
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 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 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 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 %.
