It will take you from basic Ohm's Law and you will still be using it when you are a true guru in your old age.
Thanks Raf! This is a really great community you guys have here.raf wrote:Hi Dylan,poacherD wrote:I had one last question, and it was in regards to the buying list - specifically, the 2 pin headers, and 8 pin sockets. I'm having a pretty difficult time figuring out which ones to buy, because I'm not sure which are going to fit.
The headers are Molex "KK" 0.100" pitch headers.
The 8 pin sockets can be any "soldertail" IC sockets. I recemmend dual leaf types as opposed to machined pin sockets since the dual leaf types have a much larger, more agressive contact on the IC pin. A lower resistance connection is good, low resistance is always good in contacts and ground planes! Speaking of which, the KK crimp terminals I referred to are the high vibration/ high pressure type.
Avoid using the smaller, cheaper Molex contacts for audio or power connections.
Here are some examples from Mouser Electronics...
Thanks again for your patience - it's been a lot of help for me!
