SMD Resistors Part Numbering and Manufacturers Marking

Surface Mount Resistors or SMD Resistors are very small rectangular shaped metal oxide film resistor. They have a ceramic substrate body onto which is deposited a thick layer of metal oxide resistance. The resistive value of the resistor is controlled by increasing the desired thickness, length or type of deposited film being used and highly […]

Varactor Diodes Manufacturers List Varactor diode is a type of diode which has a variable capacitance that is a function of the voltage impressed on its terminals. Varactors are principally used as a voltage-controlled capacitor, rather than as rectifiers. They are commonly used in parametric amplifiers, parametric oscillators and voltage-controlled oscillators as part of phase-locked […]
