Vishay Temperature Dependent Platinum Thin Film Chip Resistor

Vishay temperature dependent platinum thin film chip resistors have a platinum thin film that provides a nearly linear TCR, outstanding long-term stability, and thermal cycling stability superior to competing RTDs. 

The low mass of the platinum thin film also results in a fast thermal response time.  Vishay’s PTS AT series is AEC-Q200 qualified and has a negative 55 to positive 175 degrees Celsius temperature range. The temperature sensors are offered in case sizes from 0603 to 1206 with initial resistance values of 100, 500, and 1000 ohms, and with F0.3 and F0.6 tolerance classes. 

  • Temperature coefficient (0 °C to +100 °C), IEC60751: +3850 ppm/K 
  • Long term stability (1000 h at +155°C): DT ≤ ±0.04°C 
  • Temperature cycling (1000 cycles, -55°C to +155°C): DT ≤ ±0.10°C 
  • Thermal response time under 2.0 seconds in air (depending on case size) 
  • Case sizes: 0603, 0805, 1206 
  • Tolerance Classes: F0.3, F0.6
