Method of Measurement of Current Noise Generated in Fixed Resistors

|ICS Code (Fixed resistors):||31.040.10|
This International Standard specifies a method of measurement and associated test conditions to assess the "noisiness", or magnitude of current noise, generated in fixed resistors of any given type. The method applies to all classes of fixed resistors. The aim is to provide comparable results for the determination of the suitability of resistors for use in electronic circuits having critical noise requirements.
The current noise in resistive materials reflects the granular structure of the resistive material. For some resistor technologies utilizing homogenous layers it is regarded as providing an indication of defects, which are considered as a root cause for abnormal ageing of the component under the influence of temperature and time.
The method described in this International Standard is not a general specification requirement and therefore is applied if prescribed by a relevant component specification, or, if agreed between a customer and a manufacturer.
