Part Ninja v1c free PCB build

Posted on Wednesday, August 8th, 2012 in builds by DP

Ginpb built a free Part Ninja v1 PCB. The Part Ninja is a electronic component testing tool. It identifies electronic components like transistors and FETs, determines the pinout, and measures basic specifications.

If you build a free PCB we’ll send you another one! Blog about it, post a picture on Flicker, whatever – we’ll send you a coupon code for the free PCB drawer.

    will there ever be a seeed version of the Part Ninja for purchase?

    Is (will be) Part ninja able to measure inductances?
    In which range and precision?


  3. EquinoXe says:

    How about an ESR meter, will this handy option also be included?

    • Ian says:

      Perhaps eventually. We tried to connect all the hardware needed for advanced measurement, but not all features will be implemented in the initial firmware.

      • EquinoXe says:

        If it is only software that has to be written then I have no doubt it will be implemented soon, especially with all these dodgy el-cheapo caps messing with hardware for the last few years.

        Well, I hope the Ninja is available before X-mass, its a nice little gift to put on my wish list.
