Additionally, VFR sees this arrangement as a solid plus for high-end electronics manufacturers in India because they will now have genuine high-precision resistor products more immediately available for prototype development, as well as production, with all the advantages and efficiency of in-country procurement.
Since there is such a tight relationship between the PCB construction (design) and the resistor power requirements (also design), one of the first things that we should be considering is a guideline for the designer.
