Thick Film Resistors
Thick film chip resistors is surface-mount technology (SMT) components, Sizes most common are 0805 and 0603. Smaller resistors are available in 0402 and 0201 even 01005 case sizes, but handling such small parts can make your surface mount hardware more expensive.
The ends of thick film general purpose chip resistors are coated with conductor. metal that is used is most often something that is easily solderable, and often a solder is wetted to the surface to facilitate SMT assembly.
Temperature coefficient of resistivity (TCR) for thick film resistors is usually 100 to 250ppm / °C. Thin film resistors behave better over temperature.
They are applicable for consumer electronics, power, automotive electronics, industrial applications, battery, energy systems, etc.
