Behold: a high-resolution "Field Guide to Resistors," just for you.
From time to time, we design posters around basic electronics concepts for our beginner tutorials, and our latest addition is all about resistors. Go ahead and fill out the form, and we'll send you an email with a link to the download. Head to your nearest Kinkos or Staples, and print out this high-resolution, 24"x36" poster to spruce up your workspace. Enjoy!
Commonly used in breadboards and other prototyping applications, these resistors make excellent pull-ups, pull-downs and current limiters. These thick-lead versions of the resistors fit snugly into a breadboard with very little movement, so you should have few to no issues using them in your next project!
