References and Publications about LASER Resistor Trimmings and related Subjects

Mail to webmaster


The reference list below contains interesting articles as well as books about laser resistor trimmings and resistance calculations. The list is grouped into the following sections
Sections:
Trim and Film Technology
Fundamentals of calculation
Mathematic / Numeric
The section Fundamentals refer to physical as well as to mathematical fundamental knowledge which is necessary for the subject here. The other items are more specific and thus closer to the subject laser trimmings and resistance calculations.
Some of our own publications are present as PDF-file. In that case you can click on the title. (best view with GSVIEW v4.3 or higher from Ghostgum Software Pty Ltd.)

The main document of this project is (currently in German only; English abstract here):
