Stand-alone inductance meter update

An update on Lukas’ stand-alone inductance meter project we covered previously:

From a high-level point of view the new software is very similar to the Arduino sketch I wrote for the Inductance Meter Shield. If you look a bit closer, you’ll notice some differences for several reasons:

  • This project uses an entirely different microcontroller: A PIC 16F1932 instead of the Atmel Atmega328
  • This code is written in C (for the MikroC for PIC compiler by Mikroelektronika), not Arduino-style C++
  • The display I’m using here comes with a I2C interface rather than the familiar Hitachi interface

    16f1932 is a typo – should be 1936.
