The resistance change of thin-film resistor under different power loads shows that, as power load increased, the temperature of the thin-film resistor increased, which in turn caused the resistance to change.
In addition, a local interconnect layer is available for short runs and contact to thin-film resistors. All process layers are defined by I-line stepper lithography for optimal alignment and precise critical dimension control.
This is a 'digital' trim as opposed to the more accurate analog' trim of the thin-film resistors. A current is passed through the link high enough to fuse the link open.
Vishay Intertechnology has announced a series of thin-film resistors designed to help makers of commercial- and military-grade hybrid assemblies create more compact designs while reducing assembly costs.

The lower right and upper left chips contain test patterns for measuring the DC properties of YBCO and the Mo/Ti thin-film resistors.
Thin-film resistors are fabricated with a NiCr layer.
Meandering transmission lines, capacitors, vias, thin-film resistors and other planar components are automatically broken down into electrical transmission lines and bends, and other electrical components.
