A series of thick film chip resistors for automotive and industrial applications have been introduced by Vishay Intertechnology. The Vishay Draloric RCA-HP e3 series devices combine advanced sulphur resistance, excellent pulse load performance, and high power ratings in a single device.
For high sulphur environments, the AEC-Q200 qualified resistors feature a construction that provides a sulphur withstand ability in accordance with ASTM B809‑95, tested at an advanced level of 90 °C for 1,000 hours.
The robust devices withstand high and repetitive pulses and provide power ratings to 1.5W.
RCA-HP e3 series resistors are available in eight case sizes ranging from 0402 to 2512. The devices offer a resistance range from 1Ω up to 1MΩ with tolerances of ± 1% and ±5 %, TCR of ± 100ppm/K and ± 200ppm/K, and an operating voltage range from 50V to 500V.
RoHS-compliant and halogen-free, the resistors feature single-sided (0402) or double-sided (0603 through 2512) printed resistor elements with a protective coating. The devices offer pure tin plating, which provides compatibility with lead (Pb)-free and lead-containing soldering processes.
