Following are 2W resistors:
2 ea. 0.5 Ohm R14 R15; Mouser P/N 262-0.5-R C
4 ea. 1.0 Ohm R4 R5 R16 R17; Mouser P/N 262-1. 0-RC
11 ea. 1.5 Ohm R1, R2, R3, R6 thru R13; Mouser P /N 262-1.5-RC
1 ea. 2.4 Ohm R18; Mouser P/N 283-2.4-RC
1 ea. 3.0 Ohm R19; Mouser P/N 262-3.0-RC
1 ea. 3.6 Ohm R20; Mouser P/N 262-3.6-RC
Note: We recommend you build and test one attenuato r at a time.
Step 1 . Open the resistor packages and verify each resis tor by the color code. Tape
or glue the template below to a piece of styrofoam or cardboard and punch a small hole in
the middle of each circle. The resistors may then be separated by value by sticking one
lead in the hole. The count of resistors per value per attenuator is below the values. The
colors of the 3 color code bands is below the count .
For reference: The color code for the value of thes e resistors is contained in the 3 colored
bands near one end. The gold band on the other end indicates the resistor tolerance of 5%.
The first 2 bands are coded as: 0=Black, 1=Brown, 2=Red, 3=Orange, 4=Yellow, 5=Green,
6=Blue, 7=Violet, 8=Gray, 9=White. The third band is the multiplier and, for resistors less than
10 Ohms, is either Silver (multiply by 0.01) or Gol d (multiply by 0.1). An example: The three
bands are Red-Yellow-Gold which would be 2(Red) 4(Y ellow) multiplied by 0.1(Gold) , 24 times
0.1 = 2.4 Ohms.
0.5 Ohms 1.0 Ohms 1.5 Ohms 2.4 Ohms 3.0 Ohms 3.6 Ohms

Notes on Installing Resistors.
Each resistor will be installed standing up (See Figure
1.) Prepare the resistor for installation by gently bending one lead 180 degrees so that
both leads are parallel and close together
Figure 1. Completed SA-16-AR
Resistors will be installed on the silkscreened sid e of the printed circuit (the side with
white printing on it). The circle printed on the b oard surrounds the hole in the board that
the body side of the resistor will be mounted in. The short white line from the circle to
another hole indicates where the other lead (the be nt-over) lead will mount. The
identifier (R1, R2, etc.) is printed near the circl e in each case.
When mounting the resistor, allow about 1/8 inch of clearance between the body and the
board. This makes inspecting the solder joint easi er and looks neat.
