High Frequency/RF Resistors
High Frequency or RF Resistors are resistors specifically designed to handle signals with high frequency content. This type of components usually have power ratings and tolerances that are much higher, and are therefore able to handle higher currents and voltages, as well as higher frequencies. The most known type of RF Resistor is the Chip resistor, which is an extremely small, lightweight component that can be used for applications with high frequency content. The most common types are the Wire-Wound, Metal-Film, and Thick-Film. These resistors are used in circuits that require extremely high frequency content, like Radio, Telecommunications, and High Speed Circuits.
