New Vishay Intertechnology ThermaWick™ SMD Thermal Jumper Chip Removes Heat From Electrically Isolated Components NYSE:VSH

tags151 smd resistor

Malvern, Pennsylvania, April 6, 2020 (Global News)-Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today launched ThermaWick™​​

Surface-mounted thermal jumper chip. Vishay Dale thin-film devices enable designers to transfer heat from electrically isolated components by providing a thermal path to the ground plane or common heat sink.

The chip released today uses an aluminum nitride substrate with a thermal conductivity of up to 170 W/m°K, which can reduce the temperature of the connected components by more than 25%. This reduction allows designers to increase the power handling capabilities of these devices, or extend their lifespan under existing operating conditions, while maintaining the electrical isolation of each component. By protecting adjacent equipment from thermal loads, the reliability of the entire circuit is improved.

THJP's low capacitance as low as 0.07 pF makes it an excellent choice for high frequency and heat ladder applications. The heat conductor will be used for power supplies and converters. RF amplifiers; synthesizer pins and laser diodes; and filters for AMS, industrial and telecommunications applications.

The device offers six shell sizes from 0603 to 2512, and custom sizes are available. The 0612 and 1225 housings have long side terminations to provide additional heat transfer capability. Thermal jumpers can provide lead (Pb) bearings and lead-free (Pb) wrap-around terminals.

Samples and mass production of ThermaWick THJP series thermal patch cords are now available, and the lead time is six weeks.

It is a Fortune 1000 company listed on the New York Stock Exchange (VSH). It is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, MOSFETs and infrared optoelectronics) and passive electronic components (resistors, inductors and capacitors). These components are used in almost all types of electronic equipment and equipment in the industrial, computer, automotive, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, power and medical markets. Vishay's product innovation, successful acquisition strategy and "one-stop" service make it a global industry leader. You can find Vishay on the Internet at:
