Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. today introduced a new high-voltage thin-film resistor divider network that offers a compact, higher-precision alternative to functionally equivalent products built on thick film technology. The new Vishay Dale Electro-Films HVRD features an absolute tolerance to 1%, ratio tolerance to 0.1%, absolute TCR as low as ± 50 ppm/degree C, and TCR tracking of ± 10 ppm/degree C.
Offered in a surface-mount 1206 format, the HVRD is compatible with high-speed assembly equipment, with edge castellation to allow visual inspection of solder joints. Featuring a high 120V maximum operating voltage, the HVRD will be used for voltage division in power converters, battery management circuitry, high-voltage test equipment, renewable energy and smart grid systems, and a wide range of industrial applications.
Samples and production quantities of the HVRD thin film resistor divider network are available now, with lead times of eight weeks for large orders.
