Vishay Intertechnology Launches New Precision MELF Resistor Sample Kits

Convenient Prototyping Aid Provides Every Fourth Value of E96 Series in MMA 0204 and MMB 0207 Packages

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - Dec 12, 2012) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) is now offering laboratory sample kits that put popular values for its precision MELF resistors at designers' fingertips to simplify prototyping and speed time to market for a wide range of electronic systems.

Two new sample kits were released today, offering roughly 100 of the most popular resistance values in the MMA 0204 and MMB 0207 packages respectively. Each kit supplies 20 resistors for every fourth value of the E-96 series with 0.1 % tolerance and temperature coefficient of 25 ppm/K.

The resistors are enclosed in blister tape on clearly labeled six-ring A5 binder pages. A total of 2180 resistors is supplied in each kit, giving design engineers the freedom to experiment for easily defining the perfect fit for their designs.
Built on thin film technology, Vishay's precision MELF resistors serve in a wide variety of applications, including solar inverters, power meters, automotive engine and gearbox control units, test and measurement equipment, power supplies, and lighting systems.

The devices included in the lab kits are AEC-Q200-qualified and approved according to EN 140401-803.

The new engineering design kits are available now, with typical lead times of eight weeks. Follow MELF resistors from Vishay at
