RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Resistors!

ResistorGuide.com: Your guide ot the world of resistors - RF CafeAfter spending a while perusing Paul van Oorschot's ResistorGuide.com 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 ResistorGuide website: Your guide to the world of resistors. - RF CafeOhm's 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.
