Arhi’s transitor tester built into a case

Posted on Tuesday, December 27th, 2011 in project logs by DP

Arhi built a transistor tester, a tool that recognizes and measures most common semiconductors. We’ve been following this project closely for the past week or so.

After building a perf-board version, he made this version to put in a case. Check out the video of it in operation above.

    Hello,
    I want to build this tester with ATmega8A-AU (TQFP32).
    Do I need to edit the software?
