Fixing a PM5132 function generator with the Part Ninja

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

JanW has used the Part Ninja to rescue a PM5132 function generator: Today I put the Part Ninja to good use, it came in handy when I was troubleshooting an old Philips PM5132 function generator. While I was working on a project I wanted to take a break and switched...

Part Ninja built on perfboard

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

JanW built a Part Ninja on perfboard. He used a DIP cased microcontroller and through hole parts. He also replaced the 2.5V voltage reference with the similarly specced  LM385-2.5. The connections were made with enamelled copper wire AWG 28. The lacquer is burned off by tinning it with a very...

Part Ninja perfboard build

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Mikelelere wanted to play around with the Part Ninja, but he didn't have one of our PCBs. He used a perfboard to build his own. His goal is to integrate ESR measurement: I've just finished building the Part Ninja v1 on a perf board. It's a little nice tool, and...

Transistor tester powerd from 2 AA batteries

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Ferdinand added a dc/dc converter circuit to the transistor tester, allowing it to be powered from 2 AA batteries instead of a single 9volt. This project is similar to our Part Ninja, it's designed to test various electronic components like transistors, diodes, resistors, etc, and display their pin out and...

Part Ninja semiconductor tester demo firmware available

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

A demo firmware for the Part Ninja is available in the forum. The Part Ninja detects they key properties of semiconductors. It can identify transistors, FETs, resistors, diodes, capacitors, and thier pinouts. It also makes a rough estimate of key values like current gain (hFE) for BJT transistors, or the...

3D Model: Part Ninja v1a

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

Our latest 3D model is the Part Ninja electronic component testing tool. It identifies electronic components like transistors and FETs, determines the pinout, and measures basic specifications. Several SMD footprints are included so surface mount parts can be tested too. Check out our tutorial on how to build 3D models...
