The difference between chip resistor and plug-in resistor

Author: Release time:2019-08-15 Source: Font: Big Middle Small View count:56

The application range of the resistor is very wide, and it can be said that it is inseparable from the use of the circuit. Because of the wide range of applications for resistors, resistors are classified into many different types depending on the application and requirements. Among them, chip resistors and plug-in resistors are two very common types. Do you know the difference between chip resistors and plug-in resistors?

1, small size, light weight, easy to save and mail

For example, the commonly used chip resistor 0805 package or 220, this package is much smaller than the plug-in resistance we used before. Dozens of plug-in resistors can be filled with one bag, but with chip resistors, thousands or even tens of thousands can be filled. Of course, this has nothing to do with the maximum current it can withstand.

2, the chip resistor is easier to solder and disassemble than the plug-in resistor

The chip resistor does not use through holes and has less tin. Removing the plug-in resistor is a hassle. Do friends who believe in this experience are PCBs with more than two layers.


On the board, even if it only has 2 pins, it is not very easy to remove it, and it is very easy to destroy the circuit board, not to mention the multi-pin. It is very easy to disassemble the chip resistors. Not only the two pins are very easy to disassemble, but even if the components of one or two hundred feet are removed a few times, the circuit board can be destroyed.

3. Resistor stability and reliability

Another important advantage of the chip resistor is that it increases the stability and reliability of the circuit, as well as the success rate of the manufacturing.

4, volume

Compared to the chip resistor, the size of the plug-in resistor is much larger, the material used is increased, and the plug-in resistor is not suitable for large-scale production and packaging. The chip resistor has a small volume and can be used on some small-volume products. The component of the plug-in resistor is large in volume and suitable for use on larger products. The performance of the plug-in resistor is more stable than that of the patch. Work in harsh environments.
