  • Depending on the sensitivity of your dummy (reference) resistor, you might need to put the resistor (or the measurement device as well) in a box to cut down on air currents that can cool the device. In the extreme, perhaps an environmental chamber would be needed.

  • Workshop opened my eyes to the latest in test
  • Daniel, Thanks for writing this article. I had intended to attend the same workshop but things changed. Having attended Keysight's Basic Measurement Workshop and others, I know it's sometimes hard to keep up with the activities and still take notes and photos.
