A resistor network is a combination of several resistors that are configured into a pattern. Theyre used in electronic circuits to resist the flow of current and maintain safe currents in electrical devices. You can connect them to other components using solder.
How do resistor networks work?
Resistor networks are designed to drop the voltage of current as it flows from one terminal to another. In turn, this protects the electronic circuit against shock, heat and moisture.
You can use them for analog-to-digital and digital-to-analogue conversion, as voltage dividers or in computers.
Types of resistor networks
There are several different kinds of resistor networks. These include:
Theyre all comparable by resistance, tolerance and maximum working voltage.
