Resistors are electronic devices that are designed to impede the flow of current running through their bodies, allowing for the protection of sensitive electronics while also opening up the opportunity to control and manage voltage values for specific applications. As a technology that was first invented in 1959, resistors now serve almost all electrical circuits. With a variety of resistor types featuring different constructions, materials, tolerance values, and other characteristics, finding the correct type often depends on the specific needs of the operation. In this blog, we will discuss the carbon film and metal oxide film resistor in particular, allowing you to best understand the differences between two very common electrical circuit components.
