Vishay thyristors and diodes meet AEC-Q101

Vishay thyristors and diodes meet AEC-Q101

Vishay Intertechnology has introduced 37 high-voltage thyristors and diodes for automotive applications. Qualified to AEC-Q101, the devices have repetitive voltages from 600 to 1600V and wide current ranges in three package options.

The devices are available in surface-mount DPak (TO-252AA) and D²Pak (TO-263AB) packages and in the through-hole TO-247AD.

The nine thyristors deliver continuous RMS on-state current from 12 to 79A, while the 28 standard and fast recovery diodes have forward current from 8 to 65A. All devices provide up to 1000V/µs immunity.

Vishay suppressor resistors improve voltage performance

Vishay Dale NSR-HP wirewound noise suppressor resistors

Vishay Intertechnology has introduced a series of wirewound noise suppressor resistors to improve voltage performance and reliability for automotive ignition systems in reciprocating engines.

The Vishay Dale NSR-HP devices have a coating that increases reliability by protecting the resistive element against moisture and mechanical shock while enabling high-voltage performance to 45kV and operating temperatures to +200˚C.

The resistors can withstand high voltage pulses at high frequencies and have a dielectric withstand voltage of 1kV AC.

Vishay battery shunt resistor uses two pins for PCB mounting

Vishay Intertechnology has announced a power metal strip battery shunt resistor with two sense pins and that provides a 36W power capacity in the 8518 case size.

With resistance values down to 50µΩ, the Vishay Dale WSBS8518.20 is said to increase accuracy and lower costs compared with Hall Effect current sensing, while its sense pins assist in PCB mounting and provide consistent contact point location.

Vishay proximity sensor provides gesture recognition

Vishay VCNL4035X01 sensor

An integrated automotive-grade proximity and ambient light sensor for gesture recognition is available from Vishay Intertechnology.

Using Filtron technology, the VCNL4035X01 combines photo detectors for proximity and ambient light, a signal conditioning IC, a 16bit ADC, and a driver for up to three external IREDs in one 4 by 2.36 by 0.75mm surface-mount package. The AEC-Q101 qualified sensor has an interrupt function and supports the I²C bus communications interface.

Vishay MLCCs operate up to +175˚C

Vishay automotive grade, radial-leaded MLCCs

Vishay Intertechnology has announced a series of automotive grade, radial-leaded multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) for extreme operating conditions.

The BC Components K to H series Hotcap devices combine an operating temperature of +175˚C for all available ceramic dielectrics with a capacitance range from 100pF to 1μF and capacitance tolerances down to ±5%.

To accommodate the harsh operating conditions of automotive applications, the devices are equipped with an MLCC insert produced in a wet build process and using noble metal electrodes.

Vishay extends voltage range for aluminium capacitors
