Vishay battery shunt resistor uses two pins for PCB mounting

Vishay Dale WSBS8518.20 shunt resistor

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

Vishay aluminium capacitors

Vishay Intertechnology has extended the voltage range for its automotive grade 146 CTI and 160 CLA series of surface-mount aluminium capacitors to 100 and 80V, respectively. For high-temperature automotive and industrial applications, the devices provide low impedance, high ripple current and long useful life.

The 146 CTI capacitors are available in nine case sizes with operating temperatures to +125˚C, while the 160 CLA series is offered in six case sizes and provides operation to +150˚C.

Chip resistors combine precision properties for electric vehicles

Vishay Draloric TNPV e3 thin-film flat chip resistors

High-voltage thin-film flat chip resistors that combine precision properties – VCR less than 1ppm/V, tolerances to ± 0.1%, and TCR down to ±10ppm/K – with operating voltages to 1kV have been introduced by Vishay Intertechnology for use electric and hybrid electric vehicles.
