Leaded resistors offer excellent performance in applications where stability and uniformity are desired.
Leaded resistors are mounted through hole which means the connecting wires are plugged through the board. Through-hole components typically have leads leaving the body axially. Others have leads coming off their body radially instead of parallel to the resistor axis.
The following general purpose technologies are available:
- Carbon film
- Metal film
- Metal oxide
- Carbon composition
- Metal Glaze
