VPG Foil Resistors stands for unparalleled precision,
stability and reliability. Our resistor portfolio encompasses a wide variety of
configurations and packages designed to surpass the requirements of even the
most demanding applications.
Represented by the premier brands Vishay Foil Resistors,
Alpha Electronics, and Powertron, our unique Bulk Metal Foil technology
outperforms all other resistor technologies. Continuously refined since its
introduction in 1962, this ultra precision technology is the solution of choice
due to a distinct technical advantage over other options — the ability to
deliver a completely customizable solution for any application.
To complement our extensive portfolio of high performance
foil resistors, we also offer decade boxes, standard resistors, exceptional
precision thin film and power resistors including special construction
configurations to meet the requirements of high temperature applications.

We invite you to participate in a unique 60-minute training program where we put three main resistor technologies to the real test. This short technical seminar was specially designed to meet the needs of design engineers working with resistors. It covers the electrical properties and stress factors of all three major resistor types: thick film, thin film, and Bulk Metal® Foil.
Our demo session will cover the following issues:
Design Engineers, Project Managers, Component Engineers, Engineering Students, Sales Representatives, and Component Distributors, and all who share in the responsibility of selecting the right resistor for the right job.
Presented at the location of your choice, our demo sessions are tailored to your specific project and typically last approximately one hour.
