I have some python code for calculating the optimal combination based on a given set of resistor values up in a bitbucket repo
I’m porting this over to a hadoop job at some point - I’d like to find the best combination for the E12 series, as those are easiest to find.
So far, with 46 digital levels, the best E12 series I’ve found is:
[1000, 1200, 10000, 1500, 4700, 8200, 1800, 2200]
You can see this in circuitlab
heh, I have cluster power, hence why I was interested. Essentially then you are just brute force checking all possible combinations?
There has to be a faster way of doing this.
Can you share the exact method you’re using for the calculations? It’d be nice to find the best combinations based on a given set of resistors…
No public wish lists :(
