The Part Ninja identifies electronic components like transistors and FETs, and measures basic specifications. Get an overview of this new project in this week’s workshop video. If you’re at Bay Area Maker Faire next month please stop by and see it in person.
We give a preview of the revision 2 board in the video. This project probably needs a couple more revision before it’s perfect, look for it in the fall at the earliest. To tide yourself over, why not use our gerbers to make your own PCBs and follow along with the development fun.
This project started in a forum thread that generated two projects. The first project, a new PCB layout for the AVR Transistor Tester, has already been tested by many users. The Part Ninja project combined elements of several designs to get better measurements. You can join the development of both projects in the forum.
