We received some parts from our stores room with out a part number. We have 2 to choose from one being a 5% and one being a .1%. Does the color of the resistor mean anything? Just need some help on this. Thanks.

The color does mean something, If you know the manufacturer their spec sheet will tell you. The three and 4 digit only applies to larger resistors, There are 1% 0603 that have only 3 digits. You may want to just call them all 5%. Russ

An explanation that could possibly help (depending on the exact code on these parts) is on http://www.marsport.demon.co.uk/smd/res.htm. The author of this ends the page with a "Personally, I'd check with an ohm-meter!". Daan Terstegge http://www.smt

In the marketing description of your paste, look for "percent metal by volume." This percent metal by volume figure gives you a good approximation of the amount of metal in each solder paste brick that you print on your board. In most solder paste fo

A potato is: * 80 percent water * 20 percent solids Temperature: * Water boils at ~100*C * Your solder pot ~240*C If you want to try this experiment, talk someone else into doing it while you're on break.

Hello, can someone share good practise how to calculate how many percent solder paste can be applied on solder mask for better solderability (by increasing stencil aperture). In eg, aperture is increased 30 percent, could it be more? Where find this
