Vishay Intertechnology Introduces New Series of Precision Thin Film Chip Resistors Featuring Gold Terminations for Conductive Gluing
Press release date: August 7, 2014
MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced a new series of precision thin film chip resistors featuring gold terminations for conductive gluing. Offered in 0402 and 0603 case sizes, the MC ATAU series combines high-temperature operation to +155 °C with tight tolerances to ± 0.1 % and TCR down to ± 15 ppm/K.
In addition to excellent high-temperature performance, the MC ATAU series is extremely robust against harsh environmental conditions and provides superior moisture resistivity of lÄR/Rl < 0.5 % at +85 °C and 85 % relative humidity for 1,000 hours. The devices offer resistance down to 100 Ω and maximum rated dissipation to 0.125 W. For automotive applications, the resistors are qualified according to AEC-Q200.
MC ATAU resistors are the perfect choice for most fields of modern precision electronics where reliability and stability are major concerns. Typical applications will include energy management and measurement in industrial and automotive electronics, including engine control units, gear box controls, braking systems, and lighting.
