Ben Ryves built his own version of the superprobe. having no need for some of the standard features he has modified the source for additional functionality. there is an excellent video of Ben demonstrating his superprobe after the break.

    Very nice project, and a very nice explanation/demo! (Very horrible tablecloth, however.)

    I gotta build me one of these…

    This one test semiconductors. But what i miss is ers meter in both of them.

    Thanks

    There’s a pretty interesting PIC based ESR meter at

    and the test equipment section over at badcaps.net
    has a lot of discussion about ESR meters in general:

    I built one of these a few tears ago and put in an exotic wood enclosure. You can see it at http://galacticstudios.org/component/content/article/2-electronics/7-woodensuperprobe
