Abstract
Thick-Film Resistors (TFR) are applied for many years for the manufacturing of ceramic electronic packages as well as for mechanical or thermal sensors. The resistors characteristics (e.g. Rsqr, HTCR, CTCR) are guaranteed by paste suppliers for a thermal range of operation between -55 and 125°C. However, specific sensor applications require higher operation temperatures of up to 500°C. In the paper the results of the characterization of commercial TFR at elevated temperatures on alumina substrates are presented. Electrical characteristics (e.g. Rsqr, HTCR, CTCR, GF) are correlated with materials characteristics (TFR thermal expansion, glass transition temperature, microstructure). Different requirements are discussed regarding an improved high temperature applicability of TFR. Advantages and limits of the commercial TFR will be presented.
