This release in:

MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — March 24, 2011 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (VSH: NYSE) today introduced the industry’s first green, RoHS-compliant (without any exemptions) thick film rectangular chip resistor. Offering a completely lead (Pb)-free resistor body with pure tin solder contacts and a metal glaze on a high-quality ceramic, the RCG e3 is AEC-Q200 qualified and provides stability of 1 % for 1,000 hours at + 70 C in three case sizes.

Currently, Exemption #5 in the RoHS compliance procedure allows for lead (Pb) in the resistor body. However, to provide an environmental protection level above the current RoHS requirements, designers need to utilize green, RoHS-compliant products without any exemption. The RCG e3 allows designers to meet the tough demand for completely lead (Pb)-free thick film resistors in consumer, computer, automotive, industrial, and telecom equipment.

Available in the 0603, 0805, and 1206 case sizes, the RCG e3 offers TCR of  100 ppm/K and 200 ppm/K, a resistance range from 1Ω to 10 MΩ and 0 Ω jumper, and resistance tolerance of 1 % and 5 %. The device features rated power dissipation from 0.100 W to 0.250 W and an operating voltage range of 75V to 200V.

Device Specification Table:

Part # Resistance range Resistance tolerance TCR Rated dissipation Operating voltage
RCG0603 e3 0 Ω, 1 Ω - 10 MΩ 1 % 100 ppm/K 0.100 W 75 V
5 % 200 ppm/K
RCG0805 e3 0 Ω, 1 Ω - 10 MΩ 1 % 100 ppm/K 0.125 W 150 V
5 % 200 ppm/K
RCG1206 e3 0 Ω, 1 Ω - 10 MΩ 1 % 100 ppm/K 0.250 W 200 V
5 % 200 ppm/K

Samples and production quantities of the RCG e3 are available now, with lead times of six to eight weeks for standard orders.
