High voltage thick film chip resistors drive design flexibility

High voltage thick film chip resistors that offer high power ratings up to 1.5W and working voltages to 3000V in five compact case sizes ranging from 1206 to 2512 are available from Vishay Intertechnology.

For increased design flexibility, the Techno CRHP series comes in a variety of styles, termination materials, configurations, and custom sizes. The devices combine high power and voltage ratings with stability of < 0.5  per cent.

The resistors offer a resistance range from 2 M-Ohm to 50 G-Ohm, tolerances down to ± 0.5 per cent, and temperature coefficients of ± 100 ppm/ degrees C. These specifications suit the devices to battery management and voltage monitoring and regulation in power inverters and high voltage power supplies for the industrial, computing, automotive, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, power supplies, and medical markets.

Standard CRHP series resistors feature solder-coated nickel barrier or solder-coated non-magnetic terminations in three-side wraparound or single-termination flip chip configurations. The devices are also available with gold, palladium silver, platinum gold, platinum silver or platinum palladium gold terminations and with a five-sided wraparound configuration.

RoHS-compliant and halogen-free, the resistors are flow-solderable and epoxy- or wire-bondable.

Samples of the CRHP series are available now. Production quantities are available with lead times of 13 to 15 weeks.
