New Surface-Mount Thin Film Resistor Networks for Industrial, Medical, Communications, and Computing Systems
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA-March 13, 2000-Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., has announced the release of three series of thin film resistor network products that combine up to 23 resistors in a single, surface-mount package. The new devices will serve in a variety of pull-up and pull-down applications for both analog and digital circuits in industrial, medical, communications, and computing systems.
With a temperature coefficient ratio of ±100 ppm/°C and standard tolerances of ±5%, the resistor networks offer designers a choice of package styles, schematic options, and standard resistance values. Package types include the 16-, 20-, and 24-pin TSSOP (VTSR), SSOP or QSOP (VSSR), or the 16-pin narrow-body SOIC (VSOR). Lead spacing of 50 or 25 mils is available.
Schematic options include isolated resistors or resistors with one pin in common, both with an available resistance range of 10 Ω to 50 kΩ, as well as dual-line terminator with pulse squaring or differential terminator schematics, with a wide range of standard values available from stock.
The Vishay resistor networks are packaged in rugged molded plastic packaging that offers superior environmental protection and consistent dimensions for ease of placement with automatic SMT equipment. They reduce space requirements for analog and digital circuitry and dramatically lower assembly costs.
Samples and production quantities of the VTSR, VSSR, and VSOR resistor networks are available now, with lead times of stock to 10 weeks.
