Viking’s Pulse Withstanding Chip Resistor

Viking TechOne of the most significant market drivers in the resistor industry currently is the need for pulse withstanding resistors. In some cases, design rules or time constraints may require the design engineer to overdesign his circuit to accommodate a pulse event. In many other cases, selecting the correct pulse withstanding resistor presents an opportunity to reduce size, weight and cost of a design. It is important that design engineers dealing with surge events understand the significant difference between pulse voltage withstanding and pulse power withstanding resistors. Applications vary from line protection for telecommunications
to surge withstanding resistors for use in circuit breakers.

Surge/Pulse protection is essential for all circuit designs. PWR series, size from 0402-2512, Tolerance 0.5%-5%, 1 Ohm-20 Mohm. High power is available. It has outstanding pulse load capability, the superior pulse withstanding resistor is suitable for protection of electronic circuits against extreme pulses.

The Great Automotive Chip Shortage

The shortage drags on, with lock downs and travel restrictions prompting consumers to snap up smart phones, game consoles, smart TVs, computers and laptops to get online. Lower down in importance to chip makers are automotive chips. Auto manufacturers are not getting enough chips to fuel a fledgling recovery in their own industry.

Automakers are expected to lose billions of dollars in earnings this year due to a shortage of highly important semiconductor chips. Research firm IHS Markit anticipates 672,000 fewer vehicles will be produced in the first quarter of 2021 due to the semiconductor shortage, including 250,000 units in the world’s largest vehicle market, China.

It’s no secret that component shortages have become a recurring challenge for the component industry from capacitors in 2018 to SMD capacitors and MLCCs in 2020. Now Automotive ICs have become the latest components to find themselves in short supply and high demand.

So the chip shortage casts a pall on the industry, exposing structural problems for car makers as semiconductors become more integral. Chip makers and auto manufacturers largely don’t expect the situation to normalize until at least the second half of the year. Some industry officials and analysts expect chip shortages could remain a problem into next year.

5 Thermistor Sensor Considerations When Selecting An NTC Thermistor

Selecting a thermistor temperature sensor can be confusing, and you have a lot of options to choose from. You don’t want to risk equipment failure or circuit breaker short-outs. So, how do you make the right selection without sacrificing performance and giving up quality?

NTC thermistors have been around for many decades and have become the default component for thermistor-based temperature sensing because of their low price point.

Because of their dependence on resistance and temperature, thermistors can be used as temperature sensors or heat sensors. Thermistors are the most sensitive and so are used in precision applications which rely on system adjustments based on even slight temperature changes.

  1. NTC thermistors come in different sizes and types. Going through with a careful analysis of the application of the thermistor should allow users to narrow down choices, even when lacking other data.
  2. Thermistors have different electrical properties. The three most common types are current-time, resistance-temperature, and voltage-current characteristics.
  3. The resistance-temperature curve must be exact for specific applications.
  4. Some applications demand that the curve is matched or point matched. This is the only way to allow for resistance values at different temperatures.
  5. Resistance tolerance is also necessary. Ensuring this resistance helps to save on costs while also protecting gear.

Temperature Range
NTC thermistors are well suited to applications from -50° up to +250°C and so are well suited to a range of applications.

Accuracy

NTC thermistors and thermistor probes are the most accurate between -50C and +150°C and if they are glass encapsulated can also be extremely accurate at 250°C.

Ametherm thermistors are produced from carefully selected and tested raw materials. The starting materials are different oxides of metals such as manganese, iron, cobalt, nickel, copper and zinc, to which chemically stabilizing oxides may be added to achieve better reproducibility and stability of the thermistor characteristics.

Diotec offers a wide range of silicon based, power discrete components such as small signal, high voltage, transient protection, current limiting, Schottky, Zener diodes and transistors.

Lighting in the automotive industry is heading towards a transition stage with several technological advancements emerging in the market, enabling enhanced performance, safety, security and aesthetics. Based on the current trend, investments in R&D by major OEMs make it evident that there will be a significant growth in the lighting sector.

In Automotive industry particularly in lighting segment a new era came with the light emitting diodes (LED). Due to their advantages like smaller size, high efficiency, lower energy consumption and thus fuel efficiency, long service life and design freedom, LEDs are becoming a more popular choice to replace traditional lamps.

Their small size and design flexibility let them fit very well in the interior lighting, creating comfortable ambience and good mood, which improves the concentration of the driver. While in the exterior lighting, the laser headlight, LED/OLED matrix are added to the high beam, promoting higher luminance and greater visibility, to enhance safety driving.
Discrete components always provide flexibility in choosing the perfect match based on the circuit requirements. By choosing the best suited semiconductor components in the design, power losses decrease and energy savings can be pushed even further. Hence, the selection of the right components can also boost-up the overall performance.
