Surface Mount Resistor Tolerance

  1. Sep 19, 2006 #1

    Is there a way to determine the tolerance of a surface mount resistor by its markings or coloration?

    SMT resistors and caps generally have very little in the way of markings. Sometimes they will have a code on them (specified in the datasheet), but not usually.
