App note: Pulse load handling for fixed linear resistors

Technical note from Vishay about linear resistor handling pulsed currents. Link here (PDF)

The power and thermal behavior of fixed linear resistors are mostly based on DC or RMS loads, but pulse loads, like single energy pulse or a continuous flow of pulses, become more and more an important factor in professional electronics.
