Tantalum based thin films are currently used as resistors in hybrid integrated circuits because of their excellent stability and reliability. For high accuracy resistors it is required that the thermal coefficient of resistivity (TCR) is very low, whilst for a highly stable RC circuit the TCR must balance the temperature coefficient of capacitance.
