Embedded resistors are planer resistors that are fabricated inside printed circuit boards and used as an alternative to discrete resistor components that are mounted on the surface of the boards. The methodology described in this papers is a simple and effective approach for demonstrating a combination of measurement methods, uncertainty analysis, and associated engineering model development.
