An SMD resistor is a type of resistor that has been designed to be surface mounted. These SMD resistors are typically much smaller than traditional resistors, thus taking up much less space on a circuit board. The SMD part of “SMD Resistor” stands for Surface Mounted Device. The size of SMD resistors is indicated by a numerical code, such as 1206. This code contains the width and height of the package. So in the example of 1206 Imperial code, this indicates a length of 0.12″ and a width of 0.06″. This code can be given in Imperial or Metric units, in general the Imperial code is used more often to indicate the package size.
