Often you need to read resistor value that is color coded. You can do it by finding color values in table or you can do it easy way by using automated online resistor color code value calculator below. Depending on resistor tolerance and production technique, it can have four or five color code. Carbon film resistors usually have 5% tolerance and 4 colors code, while more precise metal film resistors have 1% tolerance and 5 colors code mark.
Measurement instrumentation is essential part of every engineer’s equipment. It can be simple voltmeter, oscilloscope or modern optic fiber OTDR. In this section of Electronics-Base.com we will make series of articles on this equipment and how to properly use it. We will give you insight on equipment you might use and more.
In this section we will place articles that present interesting and useful electronic components that can give your projects attractive and modern design and features. We will test every component and publish detailed review and examples of how to properly use it. If component is interfaced with microcontroller, complete source code for its usage will be provided as well. For example, have you ever considered adding to your project: digital potentiometer, external high precision ADC, DAC, Graphic LCD, joystick with optical encoder, audio amplifier…
In this section you can find some software tools that will speed up your calculations and help you with your project development. For example, unit converters and various electronics value calculators.
