dont forget to test the esr of such big capacitor !
the capacity can be good but the capacitor unusable if the esr is to high !

I am trying to develop what is essentially an Arduino Mega Shield to act as a 'brain' for a project I'm working on. I've had a PCB made (my first), and after thinking I had it sorted have gradually discovered a number of screwups. I'd appreciate some pointers before I attempt revision B..

For sure you can inspect motherboard visualy for parts defects, such as capacitors leaking, MosFETs and other power parts exploding or cracking, melting parts, bad pins in power connector sockets,... also you can replace the broken parts with complete new or with good parts removed from some other motherboards. For scope usage and other signal logi

you are testing your crystal?? how??
crystal can be tested using CRO or a good multimeter capable of reading frequency of that range.
@ Paro maheswari: you dont need to insert the controller to check the crstal oscillator. check if the crystal oscillator is connected to controller properly, and see if the capacitor i

You will have to calibrate your system by introducing known SWRs on the RF line. Different detector diodes have different responses, so each must be calibrated.
Find a SWR meter with a calibrated detector. multimeters are good for other tests.

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
biggest deal, so I don't have to use the better ones up.
My primary beef with these is the current range series
resistance, which is pretty high at the low curre

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

$10 DMM is a good knock-about meter, good for ad-hoc voltage measurement, and like fixing things around the car...
if it breaks, just buy another.
more expensive and sub $100 ones are actually very good, you can be quite confident in their accuracy.
in any case, if your doing electronics for a bit more than a dabble, you will end up with (...)

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 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.
