The voltage coefficient of resistance (VCR) is a measure of non linearity of resistors and is defined as the sensitivity of resistance.
A series of tests revealed that anode leveling caused the voltage coefficient to drop and could contribute more than $300,000 in power savings per year.
In addition to these topics, the e-handbook provides two measurement applications examples: avalanche photodiode reverse bias current measurements and voltage coefficient testing of high ohmic value resistors.
The combination of a precision capacitor with less than 5 ppm/V voltage coefficient, 1kOhm/square SiCr resistors, 5V analog CMOS with low 1/f noise and 30V drain extended CMOS has provided designers with high-precision components optimized for a wide range of new product designs.
Additional features include a maximum operating temperature of 175 degrees Centigrade and a positive forward voltage coefficient, which enables parallel operation, allowing designers the ability to utilize multiple XPT discrete devices in parallel to achieve the desired high current requirements of their application.
The XPT IGBTs have a positive forward voltage coefficient, which enables parallel operation, thus facilitating scaling up the current capability with the use of multi module systems.
All AVX glass capacitors exhibit zero piezoelectric noise and have zero voltage coefficient regardless of age or style.
