The Thick Film Resistor Manufacturing Process

Resistor performance issues including resistor value, tolerance, temperature coefficient of resistance, drift and power rating are all directly linked to the thick film resistor manufacturing process and the appropriate choice of substrate and resistor materials....

Thick Film Resistor Network Applications

Resistor networks have several key advantages over discrete devices. They reduce the system board area required to mount resistor devices, they increase system reliability (lower number of interconnects) and simplify the system manufacturing process.   Film...

How To Specify A Custom High Voltage Resistor

The system designer may choose from a wide range of standard high voltage resistor products. For most applications a standard device will be adequate but for some more demanding and specialist applications, only a custom high voltage resistor solution will suffice....

Thick Film Power Resistor Applications

Power resistors are used in a wide range of applications. They are primarily used as protection devices but are also found in power dissipation applications. The most common types of power resistor technology are wirewound and thick film. They are compared in detail...

How To Choose The Right Resistor – 3 Things To Consider

When trying to choose the right resistor for a particular application it may appear only resistance value, tolerance and voltage is relevant. These parameters are important but if a resistor is to perform to specification over the long term there are three key issues...
