Vishay Unveils Quick-Net Prototyping Service

April 30, 2001 by Jeff Shepard

Vishay Intertechnology Inc. (Malvern, PA) has launched Quick-Net, a prototyping service for precision thin-film resistor networks. The service promises designers and manufacturers a two-week turnaround with no non-recurring engineering charges.

Vishay envisions that the new Quick-Net service will shorten the process of bringing to market end products requiring precision analog circuitry. Quick-Net will also allow designers to qualify improved ratio and TCR tracking specifications when integrating resistive elements into a single network.

Quick-Net gives designers a choice of network standards and package types, including SIP, DIP, flat-pack and leadless chip carriers. A fax form allows designers to specify schematics, ratio tolerance, absolute tolerance, TCR tracking and maximum wattages for their custom designs.

Costs for Vishay's Quick-Net service vary according to the number of resistive elements per package.
