Re: Zero ohm resistors and schematic

Well, nevertheless, that's what zero-ohm resistors are used for. I didn't mean to suggest they're the only way. Todd ... Todd F. Carney / Medford, Oregon, USA

Re: Zero ohm resistors and schematic

Absolutely, Art. The VCD machines I was mentioning use reel of axial parts. You can buy or make reels of straight wires that are bent by the VCD like if the

Re: Zero ohm resistors and schematic

My understanding is that it depends on the machine... Some resistor placing machines can deal with wires (I have access to a roll of taped jumper wires just

Re: New Website

Given the new features and bug fixes since the last stable release, I would expect most reasonable people will accept a year between releases, knowing that

Re: New Website

Do you want faster releases? You are welcome to send patches, then become part of the team and code. If you aren't a developer and have enough money, you can

Re: Zero ohm resistors and schematic

Todd, let me disagree with you. Jumper wires can be placed automatically with a VCD like machine, as a jumper is similar to an axial resistor. During my work

Re: New Website

... A quarterly release will never happen - what project does that? There are very few devs and any worthwhile additional feature takes many months to code

Re: Zero ohm resistors and schematic

For automated pick-and-place assembly. Wire jumpers must be installed by hand, perhaps using up the cost saved by avoiding double-sided boards. For one-off or

Re: Zero ohm resistors and schematic

I agree with Yann, There is no need for a zero ohm resistor to make the layout fit in one layer. The jumper does not need to be in the schematic. It is just a

Re: Zero ohm resistors and schematic

I completly DISAGREE... I have been designing FOR YEARS this way: on the shematics I place a jumper and conect very carefully connections on different nodes.
