Measuring Tiny Resistances Accurately when using resistors

Digital multi-meter When measuring the resistance of something is a great deal more complicated if that resistance is very small. With bigger resistances, measurements can be as simple as connecting two leads between a digital multi-meter (DMM) and the device under...

Precision Resistors for the Gigaohm-Range

High Value Resistors with specified properties at small sizes To analyze very low electronic signals, resistors with extremely high values are required. Based on a long tradition of working in this niche market, SRT Resistor Technology GmbH in Cadolzburg/Germany has...

Thin Film Resistor Construction and Properties

Thin Film Resistors Thin film resistors are built on a ceramic base, with the resistive layer sputtered on top using vacuum deposition to create a chip resistor. The material used is commonly an alloy of nickel and chrome called Nichrome. The thickness of the film...
