Wirebondable 1mm² thin film chip resistors up to 100 MOhms

October 22, 2012 // By Julien Happich
The CS44 series of wirebondable thin film chip resistors from Vishay Intertechnology come in a compact footprints in resistances up to 100MΩ.

The devices feature low TCR down to ± 50 ppm/°C and tolerances to ± 0.5 %. Based on a chromium silicon thin film resistive element, CS44 series devices offer higher density, ohmic values, and performance when compared with their thick film counterparts. The resistors provide excellent stability of 0.1 % for 2,000 hours at rated power and + 70 °C for high-reliability industrial, medical, military, and aerospace equipment. In these applications, the CS44 resistors can save PCB space and reduce weight by replacing several 20 mil by 20 mil resistors. The CS44 series offers a wide resistance range from 400 kΩ to 100 MΩ, very low noise of below - 20 dB typical, and a thermal EMF of under 0.01 μV/°C. The RoHS-compliant devices offer rated power of 0.380 W at + 70°C, 100V limiting element voltage, and a - 55°C to + 155°C operating and storage temperature range.
