Post by exxos » Tue Mar 10, 2020 10:37 pm

Expensive for 8 resistors, has anyone ever seen any cheaper ones ?

RS? (similar prices :| if you need 25+ they are cheaper...)

I was about to say that... marginally cheaper.
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.

I use the SMD versions in my designs and they're pennies? For an existing design or new one?

Its existing design. Its more so the general clowns can build them themselves using through hole parts..individual resistors are fine, its just easier to solder a dip pack.

we already did a full smt version, but its on hold due to lack of time as always.

Ah right.. no chance to just get the boardhouse to put the RNs on up front and save the clowns from touching it at all?
