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...

High Value Resistors Manufacturing And Application Issues

There are many resistors available with values in the mega-ohm range. Resistors in this resistance range are available in a wide range of package styles to suit a variety of applications. Making high value resistors for specialist applications in the Giga-ohm range is...

Surge Resistors In ESD Management Applications

In this post, we consider the use of Surge resistors to maintain operator safety in applications with the potential for high ESD. The term Pulse generally refers to an overload condition withhigh power and long duration whereas surge generally means an overload of...
