Military-Approved High-Precision Device Provides Increased Accuracy for Fixed Resistor Analog Applications
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA - October 5, 2001 - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced a new established reliability resistor that features the industry's best TCR specification, setting a new standard for high-precision established reliability discrete resistors. The RNC90Z
is an "R" level military-approved resistor qualified to MIL-PRF-55182/9 and designed to provide increased accuracy for fixed resistor analog applications including feedback, gain setting, voltage division, and current sensing in military aircraft and missile guidance systems.
Until now, the RNC90Y has been the benchmark for discrete established reliability resistors. Vishay's breakthrough introduction of the technologically advanced commercial ultra-precision low-TCR Z201 resistor in 2000 enabled the development of the new RNC90Z
. Built on Bulk Metal® foil technology, the device offers designers a equally priced alternative to the with a radically improved TCR of ±2 ppm over an extended temperature range of -55°C to +175°C.
Available in a resistance range of 100 Ω to 50,100 Ω with tolerance from ±0.1% (any valve) to ±1.0%, the RNC90Z
features a maximum working voltage of 300 V. The new resistor measures 0.105 in. by 0.300 in. (2.67 mm by 7.62 mm), with a height of 0.326 in. (8.28 mm), and typically weighs 0.6 grams.
Samples and production quantities are available now. Lead time for production quantities is 10 weeks.
