The High Temperature Electronics Network (HiTEN) Conference is a unqiue forum that brings together researchers and practitioners from academia and the industry from all around the world. Our expert Field Applications Engineer, Tom Morris, will discuss various forms of resistors and their characteristics that make them more or less suitable for high temperature and other excessive environments. 

Tom Morris has been with TT Electronics for 37 years as a Field Applications Engineer specializing in resistor and magnetic components. Tom has a B.S. in electrical engineering from Auburn University and has several patents relating to resistors and thermal management.


The use and growth of high temperature electronics in a variety of applications has necessitated a closer look at the technology used in passive components, such as resistors. A variety of resistor technologies, such as thin film, thick film, wire-wound, along with carbon and ceramic composition types, may be suitable for high temperature applications. This presentation will present information on resistor construction details, material information and manufacturing processing, along with test data and performance summaries under short and long term high temperature conditions.
