This video describes the features of the High Temperature Chip Resistors in detail.
In recent years, the high heat resistance and high reliability of devices have been in strong demand in the automotive and other industrial fields.
To meet these demands, Panasonic has developed the High Temperature Chip Resistors that achieves a maximum operating temperature of 175°C, affords 100% rated power output up to 105°C, and guarantees that the resistor endures 1,000 cycles of thermal shock testing in which it is exposed to temperatures ranging from -55°C to +175°C.
Panasonic's High Temperature Chip Resistors is highly resistant to heat and thermal shock. The resistor therefore contributes to the integration of in-vehicle units that are exposed to harsh thermal environments into mechanical/electrical modules and improves the reliability of product sets.
High heat resistance
Achieves a maximum operating temperature of 175℃.
As automotive components are further integrated into mechanical and electrical modules, demand has increased for a higher level of heat resistance in chip resistors that make up an automotive ECU.
Panasonic's High Temperature Chip Resistors is made of a highly heat-resistant material developed using its proprietary technology to achieve a maximum service temperature of 175°C and a rated service temperature of 105°C. Being resistant to high temperatures, it is the best chip resistor for use in automotive ECUs, which are exposed to harsh thermal environments.
The chip resistor’s improved rated service temperature of 105°C, which is higher than the conventional rated service temperature of 70°C, allows it to operate with high-power input in high-temperature conditions. In addition, its compactness allows the adoption of smaller components, thus contributing to a reduction in the mounting area.
- Maximum operating temperature : 155℃ ⇒ 175℃
- Rated operating temperature : 70℃ ⇒ 105℃
*Guarantees 100% a rated power output of up to 105℃.
Guarantees that the resistor endures 1000 cycles of thermal shock testing
in which it is exposed to heat ranging from-55℃/+175℃.
A surface-mounted component undergoes repetitive temperature fluctuations, which applies stress to the component's solder connection.
The higher the ambient temperature becomes, the severer the stress grows. Under such conditions, the surface-mounted component needs to be more resistant to stress than conventional components.
⇒ thereby suppressing the development of solder cracks.

The resistor contributes to an improvement in the reliability of product sets used
under severe service environments where temperature changes are frequent.
