How Do Multilayer Chip Resistors Work?

The world of SMDs – meaning Surface Mounted Devices – can be challenging, especially for someone who didn’t pay attention to Physics lessons while in school. Briefly, an SMD is an electronic device produced through mounting electronic circuits onto the surface of a printed circuit board. Well, somewhere around those circuits there are some tiny resistors. You are about to find out more about their functiona ...
