Ideal for use in MCMs, bias networks, & a variety of automotive, medical, aerospace, & test & measurement equipment, the new HR Series resistors deliver robust performance in a small EIA 0402 outline enabled with FLEXITERM® surface mount technology .

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (January 17, 2018) - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of passive components and interconnect solutions, has released the new HR Series high-value resistors. Featuring a glass wafer sandwich package enabled with AVX's proprietary, automotive- and medically-qualified FLEXITERM® surface-mount termination technology in a small EIA 0402 outline, the new HR Series high-value resistors provide an extra margin against flexure damage during installation. Ruggedly constructed from high-quality materials that yield excellent performance in small sizes, the series offers: low current consumption, tight tolerances, DC power to 125mW, high voltage performance to 1kV, and an operating temperature range spanning -40°C to +125°C. Ideal applications include: multi-chip modules (MCM), bias networks, and a wide variety of automotive, medical, aerospace, and test and measurement equipment.

"This latest addition to our portfolio of high-value resistors is ideal for applications that require surface mountable resistors with a small EIA outline and enhanced protection against the damage that can result from flexure during installation," said Larry Eisenberger, principal technical marketing engineer at AVX.

The new HR Series high-value resistors are currently available in a single outline (EIA 0402) with three TCR values (±50, ±100, ±250ppm/°C), four tolerances (±0.1%, 0.5%, 1%, and 5%), resistance values spanning 2.2MΩ to 20MΩ, andsheet resistance values spanning 300-1,300Ω/sq. Parts are shipped on tape and reel, and lead-time for the series is currently eight weeks.
