Free Inductance Meter PCB – first come, first served

_MG_1211

When I made the PCB for the stand-alone inductance meter, I erroneously used a SSOP footprint for the microcontroller (instead of the desired SOIC). The PIC is available in a SSOP package (PIC16F1963-I/SS instead of PIC16F1936-I/SO) but I didn’t have any at hand so I simply made a new board with a SOIC footprint.

Apart from the footprint, the SSOP board is identical to what I’ve finally used and is fully functional. If anyone is interested I’m happy to give it away for free – first come, first served.

By the way, I’m building a second inductance meter for my father who has asked me if he could get one, too. It’s technically identical but this time the 3D-printer had orange PLA in it so I used just that.

By pure coincident, the color just about matches the newer Agilent / Keysight multimeters 😉
