Description: If you ever find yourself connecting handfuls of resistors to the ground bus of your breadboard, you may consider these SIL-packaged resistors as a time-saving alternative. This Singe In-Line component is actually 5 individual 10K Ohm resistors that share a common terminal on pin 6 (denoted with a black dot).

These work great as current limiting resistors for rows of LEDs and two of these can replace 10 individual wire-lead resistors when hooking up our 10 LED bargraph displays. They also work well as pull-down resistors for DIP switches.

  • a 10 resistor version of this would be great to have for a single package to run the resistor bars

  • The description

    This Single In-Line component is actually 5 individual 10K Ohm resistors that share a common terminal on pin 6 (denoted with a black dot).

    May somebody help me find the black dot, please? It is not that easy to find such dots on a black component…

    • Heh, we switched suppliers and the components are now a different color. The mark will vary, but there will always be an obvious mark by pin 1. In the above picture it’s a line or bar.

  • how does this work?

    • If you look at the second page of the datasheet, you’ll see a schematic of the internal arrangement (this is the 4600X-101 version). Basically, pin 1 (with the dot) is connected by a resistor to each of the remaining pins. Please ask again if you’re still not clear.

      • In the description it says “This Singe [sic] In-Line component is actually 5 individual 10K Ohm resistors that share a common terminal on pin 6 (denoted with a black dot).” You may want to change that as the data sheet says pin 1 is common. (after about 2 years you’d think the misspelling would be changed too ;))

  • Some SMD Quad Resistor Arrays would be nice too :)

  • would there be a possibility to get a 1k Ohm version of this?

  • I think there is a typo: Singe-in-line should be single-in-line, unless we need to burn this resistor network to attain the correct resistance.

    (perhaps that is just part of the mandatory “burn in” process)

  • I’m glad you have these now! They are a lot easier to use and cleaner looking than five individual resistors.

These will save you life one day.

I have had several projects where I needed upwards of 10 or 15 10K resistors and these have came in handy for space-saving and minimal-component costs. And all for $0.50 each!? GET THEM… you won’t regret it. You will even thank yourself in the future for it.
