ROCHESTER, N.Y., September 17, 2021—Microchips—also known as semiconductors—are critical to the function of everyday technologies like mobile phones, computers, radios, and televisions. To finetune the outputs of their main power supply, manufacturers of semiconductor production equipment have leveraged custom resistors from Exxelia Ohmcraft for more than 25 years for their high precision, high voltage and stability.

 

Exxelia Ohmcraft’s custom surface mount resistors and dividers offer semiconductor equipment engineers with maximum design flexibility in the smallest footprint, as they have the ability to specify both the resistance value of a surface mount divider and the divider ratio. This allows engineers to produce the necessary voltage and current required to create the highest-quality end products.

 

“Traditionally, high-voltage dividers are made using two different resistors, but our high voltage chip dividers integrate them into one part,” said Eric Van Wormer, Vice President of Exxelia Ohmcraft. “We always work closely with our customers to ensure that we meet the specific design requirements necessary to create their quality technologies.”

 

Exxelia Ohmcraft’s technology utilizes the proprietary Micropen electronic printing system to “print” precise, narrow, serpentine lines with resistive ink on a ceramic substrate, producing higher performance resistors over a wider range of values on a smaller surface area than is possible with conventional film resistor technology.

Exxelia Ohmcraft’s Small, Low-Noise Resistors Maximize Design Options and Accuracy for Sensor Manufacturers

For more than 25 years, leading sensor manufacturers have turned to Exxelia Ohmcraft to provide small-form-factor, ultra-low-noise surface mount resistors to be used in a variety of critical sensor applications. In these applications, Exxelia Ohmcraft’s resistors enable designers to miniaturize the sensor’s footprint or accommodate multiple sensors in close proximity to each other—all while increasing accuracy of the end products. Resistors have a certain amount of electrical noise that is inherent in their construction, and the higher the noise, the more distorted the signal can become. Exxelia Ohmcraft’s high-resistance, low-noise chip resistors provide clearer signals to the sensor electronics, thereby improving their accuracy. To ensure requirements are met for specialty sensors such as those used to measure acceleration, velocity, or vibration, Exxelia Ohmcraft works closely with design engineers, who appreciate the combination of high performance, reliability, and small form factor that the company can provide. “Finding resistors that check all of these boxes can be a challenge for sensor designers. At Exxelia Ohmcraft, our understanding of these requirements allows us to provide the highest performing solution at the lowest possible cost,” said Eric Van Wormer, Vice President of Exxelia Ohmcraft. "In sensor electronics, it can be difficult to distinguish the signal one is trying to measure from the noise of the surrounding environment, but our low-noise resistors ensure that the signal quality is maximized.” Exxelia Ohmcraft’s technology utilizes the proprietary Micropen electronic printing system to “print” precise, narrow, serpentine lines with resistive ink on a ceramic substrate, producing higher performance resistors over a wider range of values on a smaller surface area than is possible with conventional film resistor technology.
