Vishay Intertechnology’s New Sulfur-Resistant Thick Film Chip Resistors Feature AgPd Terminations for Conductive Gluing in Automotive and Industrial Applications

MALVERN, Pa., July 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE:VSH) today introduced a new series of sulfur-resistant thick film chip resistors with silver/palladium (Ag/Pd) terminations for conductive gluing. Featuring a robust design for automotive and industrial applications, the AEC-Q200-qualified Vishay Draloric RCA-AP e4 series devices provide advanced sulfur resistance and high operating temperatures to +175 °C.

Featuring a unique flip chip design, the space-saving resistors released today offer a reduced package footprint compared to solderable devices, while delivering low parasitic capacitance and inductance. For high-sulfur environments, the RCA-AP e4 series features a sulfur withstand ability in accordance with ASTM B809-95, tested at an advanced level of +90 °C for 1000 hours. The devices are optimized for hybrid circuit applications in high-temperature environments.

RCA-AP e4 series resistors are available in the 0603 case size and offer power ratings to 0.15 W at +70 °C. The RoHS-compliant, halogen-free devices provide a resistance range from 1 Ω to 10 MΩ with tolerances of ± 1 % and ± 5 %, TCR of ± 100 ppm/K and ± 200 ppm/K, and an operating voltage of 75 V.

Samples and production quantities of the RCA-AP e4 series are available now, with lead times of 10 weeks.
