Vishay Intertechnology Inc. (Malvern, PA) announced its CHP and HCHP Series of high-stability, thick film resistor chips, which are designed for professional, industrial, military and other high-reliability applications. The new devices are particularly suited to calibration, power supplies, RF circuits and digital-to-analog conversion designs.
The Vishay Sfernice thick film resistor chips includes the CHP Series of standard passivated resistors and the HCHP Series of resistors for higher-frequency applications. Established reliability versions are also available. Twelve case sizes are available in industry-standard SMD packages, from 0502 to 2512. Nickel terminations are either pre-tinned for standard surface-mount and reflow, or with gold over nickel for use with high-temperature solders or other applications, including wire bonding or gluing.
The thick film chip resistors are available in waffle-pack or in 8 mm tape-and-reel packaging up to 4,000 units per reel. Pricing for US delivery in 10,000-piece quantities is $1.27 each.
