Capacitor markets in the Americas are broken down by dielectric, including ceramic, tantalum, aluminum, DC Film and AC Film and country of consumption; Resistor markets are broken down into linear, non-linear and variable resistor segments; with further breakouts including chips, networks, wirewound, nichrome, tin-oxide and carbon resistive types; and metal oxide varistor, PTC thermistor and NTC thermistor non-linear resistive markets in the Americas by country of consumption.
Nanococomposites are attractive for resistor applications because variable resistor materials can be formed simply by changing the metal insulator ratio.
Otis Boykin's variable resistor has been used in guided missiles, a burglarproof cash register, a chemical air filter and a control unit for heart stimulators.
