# Smd Resistor Code 101- Check!! value, and calculations

If you are looking for the value of **SMD resistor code 101** in Ohms then you should check images along with its notation below.

The value of SMD resistor code 101 is **100 ohms**. Check why?

Now,

SMD resistors generally have markings on it. There are three coding systems for smd resistance:

- 3 digit SMD resistor coding sys.
- 4 digit SMD resistor coding sys.
- EIA96 SMD resistor coding sys.

## The surface mount device shown below with code 101:

Lets the code on smd resistor be XYZ.

Then, the usual formula to calculate the value of smd resistor code of 3-digit,

** XYZ → XY * 10 ^{Z} **

**→ XY * 10**

^{Z}ΩThe first 2 digit in the code specifies the significant digits, and the third one is a multiplier digit. This system is same as that of the resistor colour code used in cylindrical carbon resistor large size we use. Here simply numbers are used instead of colors.

## For calculating smd resistor code 101,

**Here,** X = 1 (1st digit)

Y = 0 (2nd digit)

Z = 1 (3rd multiplier digit)

101 → 10 × 10Ω

→ 10 × 10^{1} Ω

→ **100Ω **

So, it is a** 100Ω** resistor code 101 smd resistor. By looking at this three-digit code you can not guess the power ratings of a resistor so you have to refer the datasheet by the part manufacturer/ supplier. The SMD device size depends primarily on the specified power rating we will be discussing it in next post.
