New Performance Requirements for Resistors
in aeronautics applications
The designs of today’s aircrafts are being driven by two primary goals: increasing aircraft fuel efficiency and conforming to anti-pollution regulations. The humble resistor can be helpful, provided some of its key specifications are given close consideration.In order to increase fuel efficiency, the weight of the aircraft is decreased by reducing cabling, which can be achieved by moving electronics close to their function.
