Decadic voltage dividers
Designing decadic voltage dividers is not as simple as it may seem. One decade is not too difficult, but when a number of decade steps are to be selected by a rotary switch the design becomes rather more tricky. Or does it? In this article, an old divider circuit is rehashed that otherwise may easily be overlooked in these days of microprocessor-controlled digital potentiometers.
