[?] Digital HDD VU Meter Question, quick and easy
« on: February 23, 2004, 08:46:08 PM »

Im planning on building one of these for my lanbox and Im making the supply list on jameco.com. Under the materials list for the digital meter it says Capacitor 220uF (microFarads) 25V. Jameco.com has lots of different KINDS of resistors and I dont know which one I need. If someone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

EDIT: Also if someone could point me in the right direction of the 18/16 pin IC socket on jameco.com it would also be very much appreciated.

here's a jameco link to the cap that you need:

about the resistors, you can use 1/4 W resistors, then get the right value needed in that circuit you're making.

the sockets in jameco are sold in tens though.  you might want to visit radioshack for IC sockets.

yea, i was doing the same, looking for caps and sockets but had too much trouble locating them. not to mention you have to buy in bulk quantities. just radioshack/electronics store to find them, much less stressful, but not as cheap on price.
