Resistors

  • B C Roberts
Chapter
Part of the Macmillan Engineering Evaluations book series (MECS)

Abstract

This chapter discusses the types, characteristics and applications of fixed resistors and outlines the manufacturing process of each type where this process is a factor which affects the reliability of the component. The chapter then proceeds to outline the causes of failure in resistors and gives considerations of overall reliability before briefly discussing variable resistors and their use.
