Once you have a few resistors on a schematic, it's tempting to do what you want using existing values. That reduces the BOM and the pick-and-place setup. There are far more possibilities if you are willing to compromise things some, or put resistors in series and parallel. This is a 4-page schematic with 9 different resistors. Doing this is an enormous PITA. https://www.dropbox.com/s/aoz...


annular ring issue

I'm planning a 4 or 6 layer board with all 2 oz copper and thin FR4 dielectrics. Given a thru-hole multi-row connector (like a 3x32 DIN) I want to ground some pins. The grounded pins would hit an inner ground plane flood-over, namely no thermals. Clearly annular rings on the pad stack wouldn't matter on those layers; it's all copper. But where other pins aren't grounded, I want mimin...

My scope has a hole in its front plate to accommodate a standard BNC plug, but it's not big enough for this oversized plastic variant. This probably saves several cents per probe, but created a problem I didn't need. ...
