at least i think that is what they are called

what i want to do is pull up or pull down a bank of 8 pins, i know i should use 10k resistors for this
but would like to do so with one component instead of 8 seperate resistors

and i am unclear what i need for sure, the sources i find look right, but i am not sure and don't want to
get the wrong thing

anyone with a source and p/n?

Dream it, design it, engineer it, build it, and

do what is necessary to make the damn thing work!

Most electronic catalogs sell them. Jameco,
http://www.jameco.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10001&catalogId=10001&productId=275864&
Mouser, too many to mention and Digikey etc. They are generally not available at small local outlets.
Look for resistor network or resistor array.

good luck

thanks Chet, i had alread found that site, but
for the life of me i cannot find 9 lead in 10k!
seems like it ought to be common, and somebody has them.

maybe i am just not seeing how their search feature works or i am missing something

thanks for the help

if anyone has a source for these please let me know
thanks

It seems these resistor packs come only with an even number of pins. So you get 9 resistors in a 10 pin package, and use 8 of them for your pullups. Cut off one lead if necessary, or even grind down the end of the package to make it fit. Maybe someone will know a source for 9 pin 8 resistor packs, though.

I have only found even number ones and have used a single resistor or a combination of smaller one (with one wasted) to get what I needed.
