This release in:

MALVERN, Pa. — Jan. 15, 2010 —Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced the new PAT series of AEC-Q200-qualified precision automotive thin film chip resistors with an ESD rating of 2 kV. Designed to meet new automotive industry requirements for temperature and humidity, while offering consistent repeatability and stable performance, the devices feature a low standard TCR of 25 ppm/C and laser-trimmed tolerances down to 0.1 %.

Featuring a tantalum nitride resistor film on a high-purity alumina substrate, the PAT resistors offer stable film and performance characteristics of 1000 ppm at + 70 C for 10,000 hours. The devices are optimized for hybrid/electronic controls, energy management, measurement, sensor scales, and stable fixed resistors applications in automotive electronics.

Offered with wraparound terminations in eight case sizes from 0402 to 2512, the PAT series offers a resistance range from 10 Ω to 3 MΩ, with non-standard values available. The resistors feature very low noise of < - 30 dB, low voltage coefficients of < 0.1 ppm/V, and load-life stability of < 0.05 % at 1000 hours at + 70 C. Power ratings for the series range from 50 mW to 1 W, and voltage ratings are from 75 V to 200 V over an operating temperature range of - 55 C to + 150 C.

The PAT devices are resistant to moisture at + 85 C, 85 % relative humidity, and 10 % rated power per MIL-STD-202, method 202. Available with lead (Pb)-free or lead terminations, the resistors are compliant with RoHS directive 2002/95/EC. The devices undergo a 100 % visual inspection per MIL-PRF-55342.

Device Specification Table:

Case Size Power Rating (mW) Working Voltage (V) Resistance Range (Ω)
0402 50 75 20 to 35 K
0603 150 75 10 to 80 K
0805 200 100 10 to 301 K
1206 400 200 10 to 1 M
1505 400 150 10 to 1 M
2208 750 150 10 to 1.75 M
2010 800 200 10 to 2 M
2512 1000 200 10 to 3 M

Samples and production quantities of the PAT resistors are available now, with lead times of eight weeks for standard orders.
