Individual Resistors [Resistor Array]
Although a 16-pin DIP is shown below, other component packages are possible. This package style [interconnect style] is used when there is no common connection point for the individual resistors. Use the table below right to determine the possible resistor 'R' values.
Individual Resistor Array
Individual Resistors, common connection
The resistor array shown below shows a 16-pin DIP arrangement. The eight individual resistors each have a node that only connectors to one pin of the device, with no resistors connected to any other resistor in the package.
Common usage; tie pin 16 to Vcc, and use each resistor as a pull-up. Tie pin 16 to ground and use each resistor as a termination.
Common Connection Resistor Network
Common Connection Networks are used when many of the same value resistor connect to the same point, normally a voltage node [Vcc or Ground]. These resistors within the package will normally always be the same value.
Resistor Network, parallel connection [Thevenin]
Common usage; bus termination. Normally pin 16 will connect to Vcc and pin 8 will connect to ground.
Parallel Resistor Termination
The Parallel Connection Network will be one of the few network packages that will contain two different value resistors. As shown in the package graphic above; Resistor R1 will be one value while Resistor R2 will be some different value. There are many different value combinations that relate to standard bus termination schemes.
Refer to the table to the right to see standard values for both R1 and R2. There are other possible common values not shown. Also refer to the definition of Termination Resistor, which is part of the section of Resistor Terms.
Molded 16 pin DIP
The networks shown above are produced in DIP package pictured; however there is a more general definition of DIP Package Styles.
