bulk resistor

bulk resistor

[′bəlk ri′zis·tər]
(electronics)
An integrated-circuit resistor in which the n-type epitaxial layer of a semiconducting substrate is used as a noncritical high-value resistor; the spacing between the attached terminals and the sheet resistivity of the material together determine the resistance value.

Comparing a 400 [ohm] polysilicon resistor, SOI behaves close to the ideal resistor through 18 GHz; bulk resistor, however, suffers from substrate coupling and degrades at frequencies as low as 5 GHz, as shown in Figure 5.
The N+/N implant is used for the FET active layer and for bulk resistors.
