Surface Mount Resistors

  • Surface-Mount Resistors also called chip resistors
  • Much smaller than conventional resistors with axial leads.
  • Their end electrodes are soldered directly to a circuit board.
  • Power dissipation rating is usually half ¼ to ¼ W
  • SMT resistors are temperature-stable and rugged
  • Surface mount resistors have a numerical code indicating a value
  • All resistors have a tolerance value
