Abstract

Thin film resistors are adjusted to value by several methods. Two of these are (1) by design of the printed film and (2) by trimming (using laser or equivalent) the formed resistors to increase their initial value to a desired value. The first method is a rough adjustment, whereas the second method is a fine adjustment.
