Nichrome Thin Film Technology and its Application


NiCr thin film resistors are widely used in the current resistor technology. Ranging from discrete resistors up to highest performance hybrid integrated circuits, vacuum deposited NiCr alloys cover extreme areas of application. Depending upon NiCr composition, process parameters, substrate and conductor materials, resistors with extremely low temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) and high stability, low noise and distortion can be produced. NiCr resistors therefore offer particular advantages for applications with special demand for high stability as well as low TCR-like selected circuits for measuring equipment, data processing, telecommunication, etc.
