Thick Film Resistors

thick film resistorThick film resistors have many carbon resistor characteristics; they can be made small and are very low cost in high quantities. Their resistance tolerance, TCR and stability over time is not as favorable as wirewound or foil types, but they have other benefits. Thick film resistors offer high resistance values, up to 10TΩ (tera-ohm), very high temperature performance and high voltage capability and are inherently non-inductive. They are suitable for the demanding requirements of medical, aerospace and downhole (oil and gas) applications. Riedon’s range includes precision high value chip resistors, power chip resistors and trimmable chip resistors alongside standard models.
