Resistors that avoid the problems of miniaturization of semiconductor devices and a related method are disclosed. In one embodiment, a resistor includes a planar resistor material that extends vertically within at least one metal layer of a semiconductor device. In another embodiment, a resistor includes a resistor material layer extending between a first bond pad and a second bond pad of a semiconductor device. The two embodiments can be used alone or together. A related method for generating the resistors is also disclosed.
