High Precision Chip Thin Film Resistors - AR Series Chip thin film resistors are manufactured using proprietary versions of TaNx as resistive material. Via a sputtering process, a very thin metallic film is deposited on a substrate under vacuum conditions. The deposited film is continuous and defect free conferring stability, very low TCR, very low current noise and negligible non-linearity.
Direct offers several sizes of thick film, array, network, precision chip thin film resistors in standard values for most market requirements. These products provide designers off-the-shelf flexibility of performance, space savings and low cost. Typical applications include: medical equipment, communication device, cell phone, GPS, PDA, and consumer goods.
