ohmcraft-logoEstablished in 1982, Ohmcraft is the leader in high-performance resistor design and manufacturing. Ohmcraft’s expertise in high-voltage resistors (over 40KV) and high-value resistors (over 4 tera-ohms) enables designers to meet and exceed even the most challenging product specifications. Ohmcraft’s proprietary Micropen® precision printing technology produces superior resistors ideally suited for today’s demanding applications such as defibrillators, diagnostic imaging, mass spectrometry and critical sensing. Their proprietary Micropen® technology produces superior technical performance in surface-mount, leaded, and network resistors. These resistors also provide industry-leading performance in precision, TCR and TCR tracking, VCR and VCR tracking, low noise, stability, and pulse-withstanding capability.

The ultra high voltage chip resistor introduction will enable leaps in functionality and performance for tomorrow’s handheld, wearable products and portable devices.

Ohmcraft ResitorsOhmcraft is a division of Micropen Technologies, a leader in innovative flowable-material applications. Surface-Mount and Leaded Resistors are Ohmcraft’s specialty. Both versions are designed for all package sizes, with industry-leading reliability and stability. Custom applications are always welcome, and can be discussed with their experienced design team.

A world leader in high performance resistor design and manufacturing, Ohmcraft is able to provide the innovators of today and tomorrow with unique application solutions. Ohmcraft aspires to compel our partners worldwide to dream bigger and design better by inspiring global innovation.

Since 1982, Ohmcraft has taken the lead in thick film, high voltage, and precision resistor design as well as manufacturing. They are capable of surpassing even the most complex product specifications regarding high-voltage resistors and superior-quality resistors.

Ohmcraft Micropen Products Micropen technology is an innovative breakthrough that enables engineers to design custom resistors specifically tailored to meet the requirements. This cutting-edge solution has proven its superior performance across all types of surface mount, leaded resistors, and divider networks.

Ohmcraft’s technology utilizes the proprietary Micropen electronic printing system to “print” precise, narrow, serpentine lines with resistive ink on a ceramic substrate, producing higher performance resistors over a wider range of values on a smaller surface area than is possible with conventional film resistor technology.
