PCB a Week 22: TraId – Transistor type & pinout identifier

Posted on Friday, September 6th, 2013 in PCBs, project logs by DP


Mats continues his challenge of designing one PCB every week. In week 22 he came up with TraId – Transistor type & pinout identifier:

TraId is a really low cost version of the Part Ninja. It’s made to only identify the pinout and type (NPN/PNP) of a transistor and display the results on eight LEDs. Currently the firmware only handles BJTs but I think FETs should be possible as well.

TraId-kits giveaway coming up soon! Stay tuned!!

    I suppose this item can be purchased on tindie, so rather than cheaper , it’s available for purchase!
