Bourns Trimmer Resistors - SMD
Trimmer resistors - SMD (Surface-Mounted Device) are resistors which allow for the adjustment of their effective resistance values within a certain range. Unlike standard resistors which have fixed resistance values, SMD trimmer resistors provide a degree of flexibility and can be used to accurately set the values of current, voltage, resistance, or other electrical parameters. SMD trimmer resistors typically have a 3-digit code which indicates the base value of the resistor, followed by a “T” indicating that the resistor is a trimmer. SMD trimmer resistors are designed to be easily solderable and typically have a much smaller footprint than traditional full-sized potentiometers, making them ideal for use in compact designs.
