SMD metal film resistors

SMD metal film resistors

Metal film resistors consist mostly of a ceramic film on to which a metal film is deposited from vapour. This process allows manufacture of very precise resistance values with tight tolerances, i.e. particularly small variations from the specified resistance value. Because of this high precision, electrical circuits can be manufactured without requiring time-consuming and expensive calibration of the resistors and without requiring additional potentiometers, i.e. without resistors with the facility for mechanical adjustment of their value. The metal film makes them particularly heat-resistant. Due to these characteristics, metal film resistors are the most widely used type of resistor in the industry. They are used in the most demanding fields of application such as data capture in oil wells, in aircraft navigation systems and in metrology.
