Resistors and potentiometers are passive electronic components that oppose the flow of either alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC).
Chip Resistors (233 suppliers)
Chip resistors are passive resistors with a form factor of an integrated circuit (IC) chip. Typically, they are manufactured using thin-film technology.
