Ultra High Precision Resistors

May 3, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Long Island Chapter of the IEEE Circuits and Systems (CAS) Society is presenting a lecture titled:

Ultra High Precision Resistors
Bill Demers, Sr. Field Design Engineer, Vishay Precision Group
Wednesday, 2017 May 3 at 6:00 PM
(This lecture/interactive-demo is free, and all are invited. Pizza and soda will be served.)

Who Should Attend:
Engineers interested in the use and application of low-noise, ultra-high precision resistors (up to 0.2 ppm/K, 0.001%)

The various types of resistor technologies are covered including bulk metal foil, thin film, thick film, and wire-wound, along with the factors that must be considered in the selection process for a given circuit application. Foil topology is then covered in more detail showing how stabilities of 0.2 to 2.0 ppm/K are readily achieved and the various packaging options available. Some portions of the foil resistor manufacturing process are examined to establish a better understanding of resistor modeling.
Parasitic inductance and capacitance of foil resistors are examined and compared to other resistor topologies.

Applications explored include precision current sensing and high-stability current mirroring, which are supplemented by live practical demonstrations that highlight the differences of resistor technologies regarding PCR, TCR, ESD, short-term overload and thermal EMF.

Speaker Bio:
Bill has 30 years of electronic component experience with the last 19 years at Vishay Precision Group. He specializes in technical solutions based on precision Bulk Metal Foil Resistors, using either standard offerings or custom parts. To best address customer’s applications, Bill produced several on-site technical training seminars that highlight the differences in resistor technologies and how they can be best applied. In conjunction with his VPG team, Bill provides full support from the early design phase to full-scale production.

This lecture will be held at Telephonics located at 815 Broad Hollow Road in Farmingdale. Pizza and soda will be served starting at 6:00 PM and the presentation will begin at 6:30 PM. (Please try to join us early and enjoy networking with your colleagues.) The lecture is scheduled to last 60-90 minutes. The lecture is free, and all are invited, however, registration is required. A passport or EDL is needed to enter the facility. Please enter the facility through the front entrance. Please leave your cell phone in your car because cameras are not permitted in the facility.

Registration is required and is available online only. If you are not a US citizen, please indicate your country of citizenship in the “Special Requests” section of the form.
