Prototyping and commercialisation of electronic systems may be accelerated with the aid of the new MCW 0406 AT (LCW AT 96/4) and MCT 0603 AT (LCT AT 96/4) laboratory sample kits for automotive-grade precision thin film chip resistors. Launched by Vishay Intertechnology, the RoHS-compliant kits are available in three-week lead times and feature devices with lead (Pb)-free solder terminations.

The two new Vishay Beyschlag sample kits offer roughly 100 of the most popular resistance values in the 0406 and 0603 case sizes, respectively, with 0.1 per cent tolerance and temperature coefficient of ±25ppm/K. Each kit offers 20 resistors for every fourth value of the E-96 series, with resistance ranges from 47Ω to 100kΩ for the MCW 0406 AT (LCW AT 96/4) and 47Ω to 511kΩ for the MCT 0603 AT (LCT AT 96/4).

The resistors are enclosed in cardboard tape on six-ring A5 binder pages, sorted in ascending order of resistance value. The MCW 0406 AT (LCW AT 96/4) and MCT 0603 AT (LCT AT 96/4) supply a total of 1600 and 1960 resistors, respectively, giving engineers the freedom to experiment until they've found the perfect fit for their designs. The MCT 0603 resistor has obtained AEC-Q200 qualification, while certification is still pending for the MCW 0406 package.

Vishay's precision chip resistors deliver accurate and stable performance for precision amplifiers in automotive and industrial electronics; sensors and scales; telecommunication base stations; and medical equipment. With respective power capabilities of 0.250W and 0.150W at 70℃, typical applications for the MCW 0406 AT (LCW AT 96/4) and MCT 0603 AT (LCT AT 96/4) include engine control units, gearbox controls, climate control, and safety and power supply systems; and battery management, measurement control, and steering technology.
