Akshay Baweja Open Source Electronics Designer and Creator

Being an Electronics student or hobbyist, you may have thought of getting a tester that could test almost anything "THE ELECTRONICS COMPONENTS, OBVIOUSLY!!"

So, COMPONENT TESTER can test almost everything, not the power components, obviously!! as they consume more of current and power which our micro-controller couldn't handle !! It automatically detects the component and display its respective values and properties on screen.

Components Under Test -

  • Resistors
  • Capacitors along with their Equivalent Circuit Resistance Value (ESR)
  • Inductors
  • BJTs
  • FETs - MOSFETs and JFETs
  • Thyristors
    • SCRs
    • DIACs
    • TRIACs
  • IGBTs
  • Diodes

Moreover, it can also test voltages upto 50V, and has a FREQUENCY COUNTER along with a FREQUENCY GENERATOR TOO. Nope, not yet over, you can also detect the IR Codes by simply putting a TSOP Sensor on its test pins.... isn't that great !!

It also won a prize at Arduino All The Things! Contest hosted by Instructables.com

Currently I'm working on version 2 of Component tester, it will be a Bluetooth enabled version of component tester and a-lot more compact.

Stay Tuned...!!
