    FSBUS i/o card - resistor connect in series

    Hello
    I am making a FSBUS i/o card. I can't get seven 100 ohm resistors "pack" (connect in series) so I have one question:
    Should I use this elements or not?

    In instruction We can read: "The resistance can vary between 0 ohm and 100 ohm"
    If resistors could have 0 ohm i must not use this resistors ...

    I don't understand..
    Why this elements are installed on pcb in instruction?

    Re: FSBUS i/o card - resistor connect in series

    Hi,

    is it right that you mean RA1 to RA7?
    If you donīt have that Resistor Array, than use cable connections or something like that.
    The only reason for that Resistors are, that is the easiest way to solder that part on the PCB.
