Printed Resistors PCB

PIHER Printed Resistors PCB are thick-film elements designed to be printed on a wide range of substrates. These range from ceramic to most PCB materials  allowing the elimination of  resistor, jumper wire, etc. insertion problems and associated costs.

This PIHER market-leading thick-film technology can be used to deposit any combination of  fixed resistors, potentiometer tracks and conductors in virtually any size, shape or form. Thereby  offering  an  enormous  range  of  design possibilities at competitive prices even for low batches.

The resistive values can be individually laser trimmed to obtain very accurate tolerances.

PIHER’s PCR (printed circuit resistors) PCB technology is ideal for voltage-divider calibration and resistor family matching. In these cases PIHER offers high precision voltage ratios between key points of the circuit.

Furthermore, in those applications where the printed variable resistor or potentiometer is linked to an additional external mechanism, PIHER can design, manufacture and supply the wiper interface according to customers´ requirements.
