Our store's namesake! Resistors are electronic components which have a specific, never-changing�electrical resistance. The resistor's resistance�limits the flow of electrons�through a circuit. They are�passive�components, meaning they only consume power (and can't generate it). Resistors are usually added to circuits where they complement�active�components like op-amps, microcontrollers, and other�integrated circuits. Commonly resistors are used to limit current,�divide voltages, and�pull-up I/O lines.
