Some of the examples in this section include mathematical formulae. Where the full derivation is not included, my working is shown here.
Folder Icon Resistor Combinations
 
Lookup tables for establishing the value of resistors in pairs. These are provided for the E24 series over as many as three decades. Parallel, series, product and quotient targets are computed.

Current Document Icon Reference Data
 
Various reference data topics.

Derivation of regulator characteristic, and equations for resistor value calculation.
Document Icon Parallel Divider
 
Derivation and calculation of resistor values for a parallel divider / termination network.

Reference Data

To be found here is a source of typical engineering reference data useful for electronic engineering. Some of this stuff I really do remember, but others of it just fall through the cracks. Anyway, it's here for your delectation.

Resistor colour codes

No reference would be complete without a resistor colour codes primer;

Resistor preferred value tables

When it comes to fleshing out the design data, you really have to design around preferred values;

It's always the way. The one you want, is the one you can't remember! It's either that or, you remembered correctly but now you're thinking about it, perhaps it's wrong. In any case, have no fear, they're here;
