if you need a commercial one, hameg 8018 lc meter is a good choice: 400 euros + power module hameg 8001 300 euros.
plus kelvin probe if you need precision 100 euros
handheld one you have the MT4080 from MOTECH around 1000 euros..

good idea is to get the LM317T datasheet:
Take the IC out from the circuit and use a breadboard + 2 resistors (or 1 resistor and a potentiometer) and a variable DC power supply, this turn this possible to be tested with the multester. THe LM317T is not like a TO220 package bipolar transistor

Choose what based on your need, experience and money.
In my opinion, you should buy now a DMM (digital multimeter), not a analog (with handle) multimeter. The best is DMM with analog bargraph.
If you agree, so we will talk about what you need pay attentions to a DMM:
1. Accuracy: if you are not a metrology engineer, so a standard accuracy

Well, the easiest way is to measure its terminals with a multimeter ( in diode test or resistance mode) and compare the measurements with a reliable one. If you don't have any other MOSFET's in your hand, then you can make these tests with the multimeter:
1 - Most of the time, a faulted MOSFET has at least two of its terminals short circuited.

I wouldn't call them "good", but you can get a basic DMM from
Harbor Freight for $3.99 and they have others from there.
I have 8 of them for my lab bench where accuracy is not the

I have a multimeter (Mastech 390-545) that has a hold button. The button operates mechanically.
The hold function does not work.
Once the hold button is pressed, the least significant number just slowly counts up (about 27 times per minute), and no connections/disconnections (once hold is pressed) have any effect on the displayed number.

Why do you want to measure the voltage across your current sensor?
You can measure the current across it by this multimeter.
I think all the multimeters can measure the currents in range from 100mA - 1A now.
However the range of current measured by multimeter exist in its datasheet.

You should use thermistors (and not varistors as someone suggested. Those are for overvoltage protection). There are 2 kinds NTC (negative temperature coefficient) which means that as the temperature goes up the resistance goes down, and PTC (positive temperature coefficient) where the resistance goes up with temperature. They are cheap, they come

for a simple (DC) estimation of the SNR, a good 6-digit multimeter can be enough.
However, you will have to take care of the design of your test board (connector, decoupling , etc....) especially for sigma-delta ADC where digital output noise can easily affect analog input.

If you see any short circuit at the any two pin IGBT is mort.
But this is not good test...

You can buy a multimeter and manually enter the data. But if you really want
good data you should get an Oscope, GPIB card, and Labview (or MatLab).
This way you can run a program that will get as much data as you want.
But it's alot of investment.

This is not so simple..your multimeter input impedance is somewhere in MΩ range so the input will very comfortably "eat" this current ..
You will need a good quality instrumentation amplifier to buffer and amplify this signal and then, and only then, you will be able to measure nanoamps..

Basically yes - but the LCD has a much slower response than an LED so the
multiplexing frequency cannot be very high.
On the other hand a static drive is not good either because it will cause "burn-in"
of the segments.
