Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. introduced a new high-voltage thin film resistor divider network that offers a compact, higher-precision alternative to functionally equivalent products built on thick film technology.
The new Vishay Dale Electro-Films HVRD features an absolute tolerance to 1 percent, ratio tolerance to 0.1 percent, absolute TCR as low as ± 50 ppm/°C, and TCR tracking of ± 10 ppm/°C. Offered in a surface-mount 1206 format, the HVRD is compatible with high-speed assembly equipment, with edge castellation to allow visual inspection of solder joints.
Featuring a high 120 V maximum operating voltage, the HVRD will be used for voltage division in power converters, battery management circuitry, high-voltage test equipment, renewable energy and smart grid systems, and a wide range of industrial applications.
Samples and production quantities of the HVRD thin film resistor divider network are available now, with lead times of eight weeks for large orders. Pricing information is available upon request to EFI@Vishay.com.
