Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Resistors!
spending a while perusing Paul van Oorschot's
website, I can say with a high degree of confidence that if there is
anything you need to know about resistors, you will find the answer
there. If it is the fundamentals you're after like power dissipation,
resistance tolerance, stray inductance and capacitance, and how
law applies, Paul's got you covered. How about package configurations,
color codes and alphanumeric markings? Yep, that's on the website as
well. So also is info on resistor compositions (metal film, metal oxide,
carbon, et al), resistor physical configurations (fixed, variable, thermistor,
magneto resistor, others), and applications (heating, current limiting,
voltage division), and even schematic symbols for each. Oh, and did
I mention all of the instructional videos? It is probably no exaggeration
to say that if you cannot find the information you need about resistors
here, you're not going to find it anywhere.
