Resistive Components

Diamond is the best thermal conductor on earth. Combined with a low dielectric constant, it is an excellent RF dielectric material for high-frequency applications in which thermal performance is equally critical. By applying cutting-edge thin film process and extensive millimeter wave design experience, Smiths Interconnect has created a high-performance line of resistive components. The resulting products, our Diamond RF Resistives® resistors, terminations, and attenuators, are significantly reduced in size and unparalleled in average and peak power handling.
