Corpus Christi, Tex. TT electronics IRC has introduced a thickfilm chip resistor series with resistance values up to 100 Mohms. The HVC series of rectangular resistors feature high-voltage operation in standard 1206, 2010 and 2512 package sizes, making them well suited for automatic handling methods.
The HVC series features wrap-around terminations with an electroplated nickel barrier and either tin/lead or RoHS-compliant matte tin finish. In addition, the overall robust construction allows the chip resistor to operate in harsh, high-voltage environments, including those in medical equipment (defibrillators), high-voltage power supplies, and military equipment (night vision cameras, x-ray equipment), IRC said.
The HVC series resistors feature a resistance range of 100 Kohms to 100 Mohms, with tolerances of 0.5 percent, 1 percent, 2 percent, and 5 percent. Continuous voltage ratings are rated up to 3 KV, with maximum overload voltage to 4.5 KV. Power ratings for the 1206, 2010 and 2512 resistors are 0.3 W, 0.5 W and 1 W, respectively, with rated voltages of 1000 V, 2000 V and 3000 V.
The HVC series also offer low voltage coefficient (VCR) of <-25 ppm and low
temperature coefficient (TCR) of ±100 ppm/°C, with an operating
temperature range of -55°C to +155°C. Custom specifications are available.
Pricing: Approximately $0.50 in minimum order quantities of 10,000 pieces.
Availability: Lead time is from stock to eight to nine weeks.
