Vishay Launches New Thin Film Resistor Networks in Surface-Mount SOT-143:
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA-June 22, 2001-Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of the MPD, a new series of isolated matched pair resistor networks in the SOT-143 industry-standard package.
The new thin film devices will allow designers to replace pairs of discrete resistors with a single-package device where two precision-matched resistors are integrated onto a common silicon substrate.
Providing near-identical conditions over time and temperature for each element, the new MPDseries will improve end product performance while reducing component count and saving space with a surface-mount package measuring just 2.8 mm by 2.10 mm with a maximum 1.22 mm height profile.
Built on Vishay's Thin Film technology, devices in the MPD series integrate pairs of resistive elements with standard values of 1 kΩ, 2 kΩ, 5 kΩ, or 10 kΩ available from stock.
The typical temperature coefficient is ±25 ppm/°C with a close tracking temperature coefficient ratio of just ±2 ppm/°C. Available absolute tolerances range from ±0.1% to ±1.0%. An extended -55°C to +125°C operating temperature range ensures exceptional stability even in extreme environments.
Provided in tape-and-reel or waffle pack form, samples and production quantities of the MPDseries resistor networks are available now, with lead times of stock to eight weeks.
