This release in:

MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — Oct. 07, 2010 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (VSH: NYSE) today announced that it has extended its E/H MIL-PRF-55342 -qualified Thin Film surface-mount resistor chips in the 0505, 1005, 1505, 0705, 1206, and 1010 case sizes to offer a “T” reliability level for space applications. Qualification on larger cases sizes is pending.

The enhanced resistors’ established reliability is assured through 100% screening and extensive environmental testing that includes 100% group A, power conditioning, and Group B lot testing, through which the devices have been rated and approved for a “T” reliability level.

The MIL-PRF-55342 Thin Film resistors were verified in qualification to the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM E-595) standard test method for total mass loss (TML) and collected volatile condensable materials (CVCM) from outgassing in a vacuum environment for space level requirements. In addition, the resistors undergo a burn-in period prior to shipment.

Intended for high-reliability military and aerospace applications with stringent performance requirements, the resistors’ all-sputtered wrap around terminations ensure excellent adhesion and dimensional uniformity. The MIL-PRF-55342 Thin Film devices feature a passivated Nichrome resistive element, while their high-purity alumina substrate allows for high power ratings to 500mW.

In addition to very low noise of less than − 25 dB and a low voltage coefficient of < 0.1 ppm/V, the resistors offer an absolute TCR down to 25 ppm/C, tolerances down to 0.1%, and a resistance range from 10Ω to 1.69MΩ, depending on case size and characteristics. The MIL-PRF-55342 Thin Film devices provide a shelf-life stability of 0.01% and operate over a temperature range of - 55C to + 125C.
