Vishay Precision Group has introduced a wide variety of resistors built on Bulk Metal Foil technology and other new techniques and materials that improve reliability and stability for demanding military, avionics, and space applications. These products include the VSMP, VCS1625Z, VCS1625, VCS1610, CSM2512, CSM3637, Z201, S102C, DSMZ, and SMNZ. These new generation precision resistors are virtually insensitive to destabilising factors.
Its resistive elements are made of a solid alloy that displays the desirable bulk properties of its parent material, making it inherently stable, noise-free and immune to ESD of 25 kV and beyond. The resistive element and matched substrate form a single entity with balanced temperature characteristics for an unusually low and predictable TCR over a wide temperature range from -55°C to more than +200°C.
