Vishay released a series of AEC-Q200 qualified high voltage thick film chip resistors.

The Techno CRHA series of resistors, which offers working voltages up to 3000V, features stability of 1.0% and power ratings up to 1.0W.

The automotive grade devices allow designers to reduce component counts, placement costs, and PCB size by coupling together high voltage handling capability and better accuracy than most standard thick film chip resistors, per the company.

Further, they offer a resistance range from 2 MΩ to 500 MΩ, tolerances down to ± 1.0 %, and temperature coefficients of ± 100 ppm/°C.

These features make the resistors great for battery management and voltage monitoring.

The devices also include solder-coated nickel barrier terminations in a three-sided wraparound configuration.
