The resistor dissipates power (watts) and the power is what drives the temperature rise.
It is also easy to see that depending on how cool you want to keep the resistor you can play with its size and location in the board stackup.
It only makes sense that the resistors we design using the commercially available resistor materials to embed inside the PCB meet the same performance standards.
The resistor network segment is a distant second with 15 percent.
The design doesn't have to be 100% complete--the minimum requirements are to define all the resistors and/ or capacitors and their properties such as nominal value, tolerance and power rating.
Offered in modular or custom designs, the resistors can be mounted in IP00, IP20, and IP23 enclosures for indoor and outdoor use.
Featuring double insulation for maximum cooling efficiency, the resistors can be mounted in IP00, IP20, and IP23 enclosures for indoor and outdoor use.
The resistors provide power ratings from 4 W to 12 W at 25 AC and temperature ranges from -65 AC to +250 AC (characteristic U) and -65 AC to +350 AC (characteristic V).
The switches are controlled in unison by the chip's TTL-compatible Output Enable (OE) signal line, which connects the resistors from input to output -- typically a 1.
The resistors that are integrated into both of these products have excellent high frequency performance in excess of 3 GHz.
