Surface Mount Resistors

RG ALLEN Surface Mount Resistors:

Surface mount resistors (SMD resistors) are a type of electronic component designed for use in surface mount technology (SMT) applications. They are widely used in the electronics industry due to their compact size, high reliability, and ease of automated assembly.

Surface mount resistors offer several advantages, including space-saving design, improved signal integrity, and high reliability due to their low-profile construction and compatibility with automated assembly processes. They have become the preferred choice for most surface mount applications, allowing for smaller and more efficient electronic devices.

surface mount smd resistorsWe produce a variety of high quality resistors from general-purpose resistors to power resistors. Please check our product lineup including precision resistors, low ohm type, shunt resistors, etc. Using Surface-mount technology (SMT) improves manufacturing, enabling very high levels of automation and in addition to this the use of SMT improves reliability, enables greater levels of functionality to be achieved within a reasonable size and reduces costs significantly.

Surface-mount technology (SMT) is a method for producing electronic circuits in which the components are mounted or placed directly onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs). An electronic device so made is called a surface-mount device (SMD). An SMT component is usually smaller than its through-hole counterpart because it has either smaller leads or no leads at all. Surface mount device , SMD, resistors are the most widely used electronic component. Chip surface mount (SMD) resistors suiting a wide variety of applications, including various types of ferrite and suppression filters. Chip SMD resistors have advantages over more traditional through-hole resistors, such as lower cost and easier automation of assembly.
