Not speaking of a specific resistor, but any resistor in general...
There is no reason to waste money on non-inductive resistors for
glitch. Actually the inductance, if anything, helps but only very
Voltage breakdown and peak energy capability are the important
parameters. We also have to watch the inductance of "non-
inductive" resistors in load applications. Many "non-inductive"
resistors are still very poor at radio frequencies. We need a
The most common form of non-inductive power resistor (like the
little metal case gold ones and also ceramic types) use parallel
counter-wound coils of resistance wire. They are both inductive,
and have poorer voltage breakdown than other winding styles.
