App note: Technical guide to surface mount resistors

Posted on Sunday, March 18th, 2012 in app notes by DP

Here is a technical guide to surface mount resistors from Panasonic. It covers the theory behind various resistor materials and the manufacturing processes. Tables illustrate specifications for different types of resistors, and explain the failure mechanisms for them.

Fixed resistors are principal electronic components composed electronic circuit. They are developed with demands of various electronic circuits and used. This technical guide is summarized the application technique about surface mount resistors used for electric machine and tools, especially, which need high density mount in these fixed resistors.

    Downloaded the tech note hoping to learn something, only to be confronted by a wall of poorly translated text. Chinglish…..or maybe since Panasonic is Japanese, Jinglish? :-)

      Yes, I’ve got to say that I spotted the same thing just by trying to read the intro text. I can’t say my Japanese is anything like as good as their English, but this is a multi-billion dollar company, you’d think they would have a few decent translators or engineers who are fluent in Engrish.

    Also looks like Fig 2. is wrongly listed as Thick film, where the diagram suggests it’s supposed to be Thin film.
