EEVBlog forum’s member Inverted18650 offered a set of neat Caddock resistors to try for stability and temperature coefficient measurement database. No need to invite twice, so here we are with the loot:

These will take some 60-120 hours of my four 8½-digit DMMs to get all data collected. And as good excuse, I got myself new PTFE silver-plated copper kelvin cable to build some fixtures.

This is nice cable, fully shielded and robust to use. I’ll be making multiple variants, using both Pomona 5406, Pomona 4892 banana jacks (which have BeCu spring contacts) for meters like Keithley 2002 and Advantest R6581T. Best performance cables will also have bare-copper spade lugs for proper connections on devices like Keysight 3458A and Fluke 5700A.

Each cable is Kelvin-connected, with four separate conductors to utilize highest precision of the benchtop meters.

I also want to try alternative idea with reverse-connected spade lug as thermal anchor for DUT-resistor mount.
