July 2014 • The PCB Magazine 45 EMBEDDED RESISTORS IN LOW OHMIC APPLICATIONS continues daniel Brandler is the technical director of ohmega technologies, inc. Manuel herrera is the design and test engineer at ohmega technologies inc. as wireless cellular and connectivity devices like Bluetooth are becoming smaller. Embedding re- sistors has and will continue to be an option to help designers shrink their products. Conclusion Industry trends of smaller and faster devices are challenging designers to find alternative in- terconnection methods and related technolo- gies. Low-ohm embedded resistors built-in-trace are one such technology that should be added to any designer's arsenal of tools. PCB References 1.
