Vishay's Electro-Pyrotechnic Initiator Chip Resistor Named as Winner of EDN's 18th Annual Innovation Award In Passive Components and Interconnect Category
Instituted in 1990, EDN magazine's Innovation Awards honor the people, products, and technologies that have shaped the semiconductor industry over the past year. The 18th Annual Innovation Award winners were selected by EDN's worldwide audience of electronics engineers and engineering managers via online ballots, with EDN's editorial staff and Editorial Advisory Board also participating in the process.
Taking home the award in the Passive Components and Interconnect category, the Vishay Sfernice EPIC was specifically designed to meet the demanding needs of pyrotechnic engineers. The resistor is the industry's first such device to offer Joule effect ignition for very fast firing times down to 50 s, and a no fire/all fire ratio up to 70%.
With an ohmic range of 2R to 10R, the device provides designers with very predictable, reproducible, and reliable behavior. Offered in the standard 0603 case size, with other sizes available upon request, the resistor features easy set-up of firing levels, and is compatible to various pyrotechnic compositions, even those requiring no primer.
