Vishay Intertechnology Introduces New MIL-PRF-83401-Qualified Single-in-Line Thin Film Resistor Network

Available in 6-, 8-, and 10-Pin Configurations, Device Features TCR of 25 ppm/Deg. C and Tight Ratio Tolerances to 0.05 %

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - Feb 9, 2012) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new MIL-PRF-83401-qualified (cage code 57489) through-hole, single-in-line thin film resistor network. Featuring low absolute TCR of 25 ppm/°C, TCR tracking of 5 ppm/°C, and tight ratio tolerances to 0.05 %, the M83401 will outperform all the requirements of MIL-PRF-83401 R, V, and H characteristics.

The resistor network released today offers three to nine resistors and is available in 6-, 8-, and 10-pin low-profile configurations in isolated (G) and pin one common (C) schematic styles. The type RZ070, RZ080, RZ090, RZ210, RZ220, and RZ230 device features 100 % burn-in screening for increased reliability in demanding military applications.

The M83401 features Vishay Dale Thin Film's patented SPM passivated Tamelox film for very low noise of less than - 30 dB, voltage coefficient of less than 0.1 ppm/V, power ratings from 0.06 mW to 0.120 mW per element (0.18 W to 1.0 W per package), and a wide resistance range of 100 ohms to 200 kilohms per resistor. The device operates over a temperature range of - 55 °C to + 125 °C.

Offering a low 4.95 mm (0.197 in) maximum seated height, the resistor network features a rugged, molded thermoset plastic construction with gold-plated copper alloy leads. The leads are attached to the metallized alumina substrates by thermocompression bonding. The M83401 is also available in a commercial version: the C83401.

Samples of the M83401 and C83401 resistor networks are available now. Production lead times are 12 to 14 weeks for standard orders. Follow Vishay thin film resistor networks at
