AEC-Q200 Medium-Voltage Thick-Film Chip Resistors

February 20, 2018 by Paul Shepard

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has introduced a new series of AEC-Q200 qualified, medium-voltage thick-film chip resistors. Designed to save space and lower component counts in automotive and industrial applications, Vishay Techno CRMA series devices offer high working voltages up to 1415V in five compact case sizes ranging from 1206 to 2512.

The devices released today deliver higher voltage capabilities than standard thick film chip resistors. This makes them suited for battery management and overvoltage protection in electric vehicles, and voltage monitoring and regulation in power inverters, high voltage power supplies, defibrillators, and smart circuit breakers.

CRMA series resistors offer a wide resistance range from 150 Ω to 75 MΩ, tolerances down to ± 0.5 %, temperature coefficients of ± 100 ppm/°C, and power ratings from 0.30 W to 1.0 W.

The devices are available with solder-coated nickel barrier or solder-coated non-magnetic terminations in three-side wraparound or top-only flip chip configurations.

Samples and production quantities of the CRMA series are available now, with lead times of 8 to 10 weeks.
