Chip Resistors Part 1: The Basics

This is Part 1 of a 3 Part Series • Chip Resistors Part 1: The Basics (this article) • Chip Resistors Part 2: Types • Chip Resistors Part 3: Applications and Considerations Greetings designers, let’s talk about resistors. Resistors impede current flow, both alternating and direct currents are impeded equally by perfect resistors. The unit for resistance is Ohms (Ω), named after German physicist Georg Ohm. An Ohm is defined as the amount of resistance required to create a voltage drop of 1 volt (V), when the current flow is 1 Ampere (A). From a dimensional standpoint, an Ohm is defined

Thick Film vs. Thin Film Resistors

What’s the difference between Thin Film Resistors and Thick Film? When looking at these two types of resistors side by side, they may appear to be similar. The main differences of these two products are the construction, thickness, and application usage of the resistive element itself (hence the descriptions of “thick” and “thin” film resistors). Thick film resistive elements are typically 10 ~ 50 uM in thickness, while thin films are 10 to 200 nM in thickness. Thick films are applied using a very simple screening process while thin films use a much more sophisticated vacuum process technique that applies
