High pulse withstanding chip resistor ideal for protection and discharge applications

08-11-2018 | TTI Europe | Passives

HPWC is TT Electronics' latest pulse withstanding chip resistor. It is available now from TTI Europe. The resistor is essentially a variant of the existing PWC with no laser trimming applied. This maximises the level of surge performance available in a single-sided flat chip design.

The device can withstand up to 6.5kV peak for a 1.2/50µs surge and up to 3kW for a 0.1ms pulse. The resistor is ideal for protection and discharge applications in compact power supplies and power control circuits where a resistance tolerance of 5% is adequate.

The device offers high stability and reliability, saving PCB area compared to multiple chip solutions to achieve the same pulse performance.
