Surface Mount Semi-Precision Thick Film
Semi-precision thick film resistors are available with resistance values from 20 mΩ to 300 MΩ. Thick film resistors have higher current capacity than the precision thin film resistors. Low resistance value devices have low current noise, but current noise increases with resistance value.
Surface Mount Precision Thin Film
Precision thin film resistors are available with resistance values from 5 Ω to 1 MΩ. The maximum resistance value decreases with decreasing case size. Thin film resistors have lower current capacity than semi-precision thick film resistors. Precision thin film resistors have low noise regardless of resistance value.
