 ## Value series CMS resistors # SMD resistors marking

#### Up to Package (0603)

SMD resistors are marked with a three or four digit numeric code.

• With three-digit marking, the first two represent the value, the third is the power multiplier of ten; for values ​​less than 10 the position of the decimal separator is represented by the letter R.
• With the four-digit marking, the first three represent the value, the fourth is the power multiplier of ten; for values ​​less than 100 the position of the decimal separator is represented by the letter R.

#### Package (0603)

There is another type of marking, called "EIA-96". It uses two digits for the value and one letter for the multiplier, according to the matches below.

Value :

``` 01 = 100 13 = 133 25 = 178 37 = 237 49 = 316 61 = 422 73 = 562 85 = 750
02 = 102 14 = 137 26 = 182 38 = 243 50 = 324 62 = 432 74 = 576 86 = 768
03 = 105 15 = 140 27 = 187 39 = 249 51 = 332 63 = 442 75 = 590 87 = 787
04 = 107 16 = 143 28 = 191 40 = 255 52 = 340 64 = 453 76 = 604 88 = 806
05 = 110 17 = 147 29 = 196 41 = 261 53 = 348 65 = 464 77 = 619 89 = 825
06 = 113 18 = 150 30 = 200 42 = 267 54 = 357 66 = 475 78 = 634 90 = 845
07 = 115 19 = 154 31 = 205 43 = 274 55 = 365 67 = 487 79 = 649 91 = 866
08 = 118 20 = 158 32 = 210 44 = 280 56 = 374 68 = 499 80 = 665 92 = 887
09 = 121 21 = 162 33 = 215 45 = 287 57 = 383 69 = 511 81 = 681 93 = 909
10 = 124 22 = 165 34 = 221 46 = 294 58 = 392 70 = 523 82 = 698 94 = 931
11 = 127 23 = 169 35 = 226 47 = 301 59 = 402 71 = 536 83 = 715 95 = 953
12 = 130 24 = 174 36 = 232 48 = 309 60 = 412 72 = 549 84 = 732 96 = 976
```

Multiplier:

` Y or S = 0.01 X or R = 0.1 A = 1 B = 10 C = 100 D = 1,000 E = 10,000 F = 100,000`

Example of marking: Marking "205" translates to 20 * 10⁵ = 2 MΩ

#### Power

To know the approximate wattage of your SMD resistor, measure its length and width. Some dimensions of commonly used packages with the corresponding typical powers are shown in the table below. Use this table as a guide only, and always consult the component datasheet for the exact value. PackageSize in inches (L × W)Size in mm (L × W)Power
