International Manufacturing Services Inc. (Booth 2106) will be spotlighting its line of HVI Series chip resistors, which are especially suited for high voltage applications, at IMS 2011 in Baltimore. The HVI Series are offered in sizes 0402 to 2512, values to 1Gohm and tolerances to 1 percent. These resistors feature a nickel barrier layer for excellent solder leach resistance and proprietary thick film architecture allowing the 2512 size to withstand a continuous 3 kV and overload of 4 kV. Applications for the HVI Series high voltage chip resistors include but are not limited to power supplies, power converters, defibrillators, sensors, detectors, pacemakers and power meters. Samples are available by contacting the factory or visiting IMS's website.
