Arrays offer multiple resistance values in one device

Vishay Intertechnology has introduced what the company hails as the industry's first thick film chip resistor arrays to offer multiple resistance values in one device. The AEC-Q200-qualified devices are available with two resistors of different values in the 0606 case size (CRAS0606), or two pairs of resistors with different values in the 0612 case size (CRAS0612 and CRAE0612).

Providing an alternative to thin film arrays in applications requiring lower performance, the arrays allow designers to lower pick-and-place costs and save board space in automotive and industrial applications.

With resistance from 10Ω to 1MΩ, resistance tolerance of ±1 and ±5% and TCR of ±100 and ±200ppm/K, the resistor arrays are to be used as voltage dividers, operational amplifier feedback circuits and DC/DC converter output voltage sensing. The convex terminal arrays are available with square corners (version S) or scalloped corners (version E).

RoHS-compliant and halogen-free, the CRAS0606, CRAS0612 and CRAE0612 feature a 50V operating voltage and power dissipation of 0.063W per element at +70°C. They operate over a temperature range from -55 to +155°C.

Samples and production quantities of the thick film, multi-resistance-value resistor arrays are available now, with lead times of 10 weeks.
