63 resistor reels just arrived for a test 0603 OOMP part book. Books and sheets should be here tomorrow. We’ll stuff some samples and get an idea of the time involved this weekend if everything goes smoothly.
This tutorial shows how to easily, and relatively cheaply, build a nicely organized SMD resistor, and capacitor collection. George likes using connectable tiny storage boxes, and filling them with resistor/capacitor kits from eBay. This is complemented by printing out labels for your storage boxes using the label design files for download. Via Twitter.
Here are some compact 125KHz RFID readers with built in antennas. They require no external components what so ever to function. It uses a 2 wire interface supporting ASCII, Magnetic ABA, and Wiegand26 formats. Being priced at around 20 euros doesn’t make them cheap. Via Electronics-Lab.
