Tales from the Cube: Resistor Turned Strain Gauge

Tales from the Cube: Resistor Turned Strain Gauge - RF CafeTales from the Cube is an occasional feature published by EDN. It is akin to Sherlock Ohms in that readers submit stories of personal experiences. This is an interesting account of troubleshooting a circuit under extremely pressing conditions - it might determine whether the maiden flight of the F-117A Nighthawk would happen on schedule. Author Edward Nauman worked at Lockheed Skunk Works. Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) usage was an unknown entity in the day for such projects, so when a specially selected and vetted part ended up having an inherent design shortcoming, it could really spell disaster for the end user design team. Interestingly, the ensuing discussion by readers ends up debating the spelling of 'gauge' vs. 'gage.'
