Vishay announced the extension of its TNPW e3 series of automotive grade, high stability thin film flat chip resistors.
The new resistor added to the series features TCR of ± 25 ppm/K with tight tolerances down to ± 0.1 %. It was developed for increased accuracy in automotive, industrial, test and measurement, among other industry sectors.
In terms of stability, the resistor permits a maximum resistance change of ≤ 0.05 % for 1,000 hours at rated power P70.
Per a company press release, the TNPW e3 series is available in 0201, 0402, 0603, 0805, 1206, and 1210 case sizes, with resistance values from 10 Ω to 3.01 MΩ. Offering superior moisture resistivity (85 °C; 85 % RH), sulfur resistance in accordance to ASTM B 809, and a wide temperature range of -55 °C to +155 °C, the resistors' extremely stable operation withstands even harsh environmental conditions.
The TNPW e3 devices are fitting for processing on automatic SMD assembly systems for automatic soldering.
