Thick Film Chip Resistors

Quick link to the Sample Request: Request Sample



Thick film chip resistors are made of a thick film resistive layer printed onto a ceramic substrate. The thick film resistive layer is a mixture of metal oxides. Surface mount chip resistors have electroplated tin (Sn) outer terminations for board soldering. The resistive element is protected by an epoxy overcoat layer.
