I saw it while running through Makezine's archives. I haven't seen any mention of it elsewhere. It's here: http://mondo-technology.com/super.html

This thing does everthing!!!! Logic Probe, Logic Pulser, Event Counter, Voltmeter, Diode Junction Voltage, Capacitance Meter, Inductance Meter, Square Wave Generator, etc.

This is something Alan should surely post if he hasn't yet Twisted Evil

Get a load of my probe Twisted Evil This thing is actually quite accurate, that is an inductor rated at 3.3 mH and as you can see that it is saying that it is 3.6 mH Cool

Cool! Details please Very Happy

I haven't made an inductance meter yet, I've made a frequency counter before though.

Well, the details are unimportant since all the information needed is given by the site.

All the features work, but I am disappointed that it does not have a resistance meter, the text to read it is hard at first (you start to get use to it), and the LED Display was a pain to wire.

LED display was a problem because there were display pin numbers assigned to pins that didn't exist on the display since the manufacturer removed the unused pins so I had to carefully count the pins and the pins that would have existed if they were there (hence, virtual pins). But, all in all, with a couple of rewirings to the display (my errors not the schematic's), I fixed the mistakes I made in the process.

The total cost however was around $10 without shipping and handling fees from digi-key.com Twisted Evil

And yes, my name Zach Rolling Eyes And I do not mostly use it for the inductance features!!! That is still too early to deturmine Evil or Very Mad
