Vishay Intertechnology High Voltage Chip Divider in Molded Package Reduces Component Counts, Improves TC Tracking Performance

For Automotive and Industrial Equipment, Device Offers Maximum Working Voltage of 1500 V in 4527 Case Size

MALVERN, Pa. — Oct. 18, 2021 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced the industry’s first high voltage chip divider to be offered in a ribbed molded package with compliant surface-mount leads. Designed to reduce component counts and improve TC tracking performance and ratio stability in automotive and industrial equipment, the Vishay Techno CDMM delivers a maximum working voltage of 1500 V in the 4527 case size.

Consisting of two resistors integrated into one molded package, the chip divider released today provides a single-component replacement for multiple discrete resistors used in voltage divider applications. The space-saving, AEC-Q200 qualified device is optimized for high power DC/DC converters and inverters in electric automobiles and heavy industrial equipment and buses.

The CDMM offers a wide resistance range from 500 kΩ to 50 MΩ, with maximum resistance ratios to 500:1 and tolerances down to ± 0.5 %. Sulfur-resistant, RoHS-compliant, and halogen-free, the chip divider features a temperature coefficient of ± 100 ppm/°C (not in datasheet) and TCR tracking as low as ± 10 ppm/°C. Compliant with IEC 60664-1, the device offers a 12.5 mm creepage distance and is rated at 1250 V.

Samples and production quantities of the CDMM series are available now, with lead times of stock to 12 weeks.

PrimeShield Techtorial Series: Part 2 - Design Variation Analysis and Variation Robustness

Sponsored by Synopsys

To address increasing variations at advance nodes, design teams add guardband margins and signoff at higher sigma to manage risk, resulting in over-designing, thus paying higher PPA cost. Synopsys’ PrimeShield™ solutions’ innovative ML-driven statistical engine enables full statistical design variation analysis, lowers the overall pessimism, and in some cases catches potential risks of design optimism. In Part 2 of the PrimeShield Techtorial series, Synoposys covers Design Variation Analysis and Variation Robustness, giving a brief overview of each concept and discussing the value each of these brings in improving your power and performance.
