THIN FILM CHIP RESISTORS


API proudly offers several families of thin film chip resistors ranging in size of 0.020 x 0.020” to 0.050 x 0.100”. API utilizes its state of the art thin film processing line to provide thin film chip resistors with the highest quality and reliability available.

Our solutions provide variety of substrate sizes, substrate materials, resistor values and accuracy. The markets include space, military, hi-rel industrial and commercial applications. API’s thin film resistors are ideal for applications including microelectronics, test and measurement equipment, medical equipment, communication devices and data converters.

API’s thin film chip resistors are optimal for applications that require high stability, accuracy or low noise. Thin film resistors are more stable at high frequencies when compared to thick film resistors.

Tolerances to ± 0.00005” (1.27µm).
