The ever increasing presence of electronics in the automotive environment requires a wide diversity of passive components possessing advanced product characteristics and superior reliability.
Not only are established systems like engine control, power steering, transmission, climate control, lighting, and ABS undergoing monumental changes, but relatively new systems, such as car-to-car communications, driver assistance, self-steering, and self-parking are experiencing similar transformations which call for a greater number of resistors and capacitors. Deeper integration within the automotive environment necessitates pushing the performance of passive components to the limit.
Armed with this knowledge, Yageo has made automotive-qualified chip resistors for use in current designs and as a precursor for future trends. The AC series is fully designed to meet the following criteria:
- AEC-Q200 qualified
- Full PPAP available
- Capable of performing under the most demanding of conditions
- Mass production under TS 19649 certification
Yageo’s automotive grade, double power thick film chip resistors offer case sizes from 0402 to 1206, resistance range of 1Ω - 22MΩ, tolerance of ±0.5%, ±1%, ±5% and TCR of ±100, ±200 ppm/°C, with power rating: 1/8 W – 1/2 W. It featured highly reliable electrode construction, biased humidity 85°C/85 RH%, temperature cycling ±1%, and anti-FOS: ±1% (ASTM, 60°C, 500 hours).
