A resistor is a passive two-terminal electrical component that implements electrical resistance as a circuit element. In electronic circuits, resistors are used to reduce current flow, adjust signal levels, to divide voltages, bias active elements, and terminate transmission lines, among other uses.

Is it possible to stack SMD resistors in parallel to reduce power dissipation per resistor? Reply 2016-12-30 16:40:33

There is a resistor on the PCB of about 70ohm. So the 
resistor would be dissipating 350mW of power.   
The SMD resistor package is 0805. But the problem is that the dissipates max resistor I fond is 125mW in this package. 
 
So can I get 3 220ohm versions of this resistor and literally stack them in parallel?
