New range of anti-surge resistors from Panasonic offers high reliability and stable resistance

Superior ESD surge characteristics and space savings for numerous applications

Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems has recently introduced a new range of anti-surge resistors benefiting from capacitive-coupled isolation for high-temperature and small size requirements. Featuring a 0402 case size and a rated power of 0.2W, new ERJ-PA2 series resistors offer space savings without compromising on rated power specifications. A high ESD voltage of 3.0kV provides very high circuit reliability. A TCR of 100ppm and a tolerance of down to+/- 0.5% result in very stable resistance and circuit operation.

Comments Stephane Ngandeu Latta, Product Manager, Panasonic Device Solutions Business Division: “Our new ERJ-PA2 series anti-surge resistors use a metal glaze thick film resistive element and three layers of electrodes making them very reliable. The ESD surge characteristics of the products are superior to standard metal film resistors.”

Panasonic’s ERJ-PA2 series components benefit have been designed for a wide operating temperature range of -55°C up to +155°C and are ideal for use in automotive/transportation applications, industrial electronics, as well as consumer electronics. The devices are fully RoHS/REACH compliant, making them very environmentally friendly.
