International Manufacturing Services Inc. (IMS), a leading manufacturer and supplier of high quality thick film resistors, terminations, attenuators, couplers, thermal management devices, planar dividers and planar filters to the electronics industry, introduces its line of HVI Series chip resistors especially suited for high voltage applications.

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 3kV and overload of 4kV.

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
