A Specialized Component

The component shown above is a resistor that is specifically designed for good high frequency and other performance characteristics. This resistor is made by Barth Electronics and the features that make it work well for high frequency measurements and equipment include:

Resistors of this type, when properly designed into circuits can yield flat responses to tens of GHz. For an example, see the Technical Tidbit from October, 1999: The Tapered Wall Cavity.
