 x0x:difficultyrating [2016/01/28 18:05] x0x:difficultyrating [2016/01/28 18:05] (current) Line 1: Line 1: + ===== Difficulty Rating ===== + + + **Total Components:​** 500\\ + **Heat Sensitive:​** Transistors,​ ICs\\ + **Polarity:​** Electrolytic Caps, Tantalum Caps, Diodes, Transistors,​ ICs + ​ + Originally difficulty rating was just going to be an estimate of how hard it would be to construct each section, however, with a little bit of math and common sense, we can probably come up with a better number. + + There would be some kind of relationship to the total number of components, number of heat sensitive components, and number of components with polarity. ​ We are going to try this one out, to see if it works and makes sense. ​ If you have any other suggetions, please post them! + + For now the difficulty is defined as: + (C/T + H/C + P/C) * 10 + + Where C is the components in the section, T is the total number of components, H is the number of heat sensitive components, and P is the number of components with polarity. + + The problem with this math is that it gives the VCO a difficulty of 6, and the envelope a difficulty of 6.  This is dumb, because the VCO has penty more components then the envelope
