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.
Based on 1 ratings:
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.
