Contents Notes
"Resistor Theory and Technology hands engineers, scientists, technicians, and business people in the electronics industries a much-needed roadmap to understanding resistor design, fabrication, and use. The authors give an overview of resistor theory and technology, showing how it arises from scientific theories of resistive properties of materials. They explain selection and use of virtually every discrete resistor type, including high-performance precision resistors, sophisticated anistropic magnetoresistance for hard disk drives and recording devices, potentiometers for automated control systems, the increasingly popular nonlinear resistors, and many others. Each chapter of the book stands alone, making it perfect as a resource for a variety of resistor-related subjects, including: types of resistor materials; limitations of resistive circuits; modifying solid and thin-film metals and alloys; conductive materials used in resistors; [and] dealing with heat transfer issues."--BOOK COVER.
