Vishay Intertechnology Announces HML, New Miniature Axial-Leaded Thick Film Resistor

1.85 mm by 0.91 mm Device Offers Robust Plastic Housing for Hearing Aids and Industrial High-Frequency Probe Tips

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2014) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new miniature axial-leaded thick film resistor designed for hearing aids and high-frequency probe tips for testing in industrial applications. Encapsulated in a robust plastic housing, the Vishay Techno HML combines an ultra-compact 1.85 mm by 0.91 mm case size with high-temperature performance and a non-inductive design.

The HML series resistor released today offers a power rating of 0.063 W at +70 °C and a maximum working voltage of 50 V over a temperature range of -55 °C to +150 °C. The HML features a resistance range of 1 ohm to 22 megohms, with tolerances down to 1 % and temperature coefficients to 100 ppm/°C. Offering 100 % pure tin solder coating on nickel lead wires, the RoHS-compliant device is suitable for soldering and welding.

Samples and production quantities of the HML are available now, with lead times of eight weeks.
