Vishay Intertechnology's E/H Series of QPL MIL-PRF-55342-Qualified Thin Film SMD Resistor Chips Now Offers "S" Level Failure

Vishay Intertechnology's E/H Series of QPL MIL-PRF-55342-Qualified Thin Film 
SMD Resistor Chips Now Offers "S" Level Failure Rate of
0.001 % per 1,000 Hours in 12 Case Sizes 
MALVERN, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/18/13 --  Vishay Intertechnology,
Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that it has extended its E/H series
of MIL-PRF-55342-qualified thin film surface-mount resistor chips to
offer an "S" level failure rate of 0.001 % per 1,000 hours in 12 case
sizes. The QPL devices are qualified to TCR characteristics E, H, K,
L, and M. 
The enhanced resistors' established reliability is assured through
100 % screening and extensive environmental testing that includes 100
% group A, power conditioning, and Group B lot testing, through which
the devices have been rated and approved for an "S" failure rate
The Vishay Dale Thin Film MIL-PRF-55342 resistors were verified in
qualification to the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM
E-595) standard test method for total mass loss (TML) and collected
volatile condensable materials (CVCM) from outgassing in a vacuum
environment for space level requirements. 
Intended for high-reliability military and aerospace applications
with stringent performance requirements, the E/H series'
all-sputtered wraparound terminations ensure excellent adhesion and
dimensional uniformity. The MIL-PRF-55342 thin film devices feature
an electroplated nickel barrier layer for operating conditions to +
150 degrees C, a TAMELOX resistive element, and a high-purity alumina
substrate for high power ratings to 1000 mW.  
In addition to very low noise of less than - 25 dB and a low voltage
coefficient of less than 0.1 ppm/V, the resistors offer an absolute
TCR down to 25 ppm/ degrees C, laser-trimmed tolerances down to 0.1
%, and a resistance range from 10 ohms to 6.19 megohms, depending on
case size and TCR characteristics. The MIL-PRF-55342 thin film
devices provide a shelf-life stability of 0.01 % and are offered in
antistatic waffle pack or tape-and-reel packaging. 
Samples and production quantities of the new "S" level devices are
available now with standard lead times of stock to 10 weeks.
