zero-ohm resistor

Electronic components; Resistors

A resistor with a value of zero ohms. Zero-ohm resistors are used as interconnect points on a PWB. They may also be used to tie two circuit points together while in system test so an internal trace ...

jumper resistor

Electronic components; Resistors

A resistor with a value of zero ohms. Zero-ohm resistors are used as interconnect points on a PWB. They may also be used to tie two circuit points together while in system test so an internal trace ...

film resistor

Electronic components; Resistors

The film type resistor is composed of a resistive film deposited on, or inside of, an insulating cylinder or filament. Film type resistors have the best high frequency performance. The effective dc ...

trimmer potentiometer

Electronic components; Resistors

A variable resistor. A potentiometer used as a trimmer for occasional and small resistance adjustments. A Potentiometer is a variable resistor, while a trimmer is a variable resistor used for small ...

swamping resistor

Electronic components; Resistors

A resistor used in the emitter lead, of a transistor, to mask current variations caused by changes in the emitter-base junction with temperature. A temperature compensating resistor used to overwhelm ...

quick connect resistor

Electronic components; Resistors

A resistor using quick connect blades (terminals) as leads. Resistors using quick connect terminals may also be of the bolt-on style package. The quick connect terminals would not be used to secure ...
