Capacitance Meter MkII using PIC12F629

This project is specially designed to measure surface mount capacitors in the range 1p to 920n and electrolytics in the range 1u to 100u. The biggest problem with surface mount capacitors .  .  .  they are not identified! And you cannot determine their value by the size of the component. This makes it very difficult. Unless you know the value when taking it off a reel, they can get mixed up and fitting a 22 ...

Making a digital capacitance meter using PIC16F628A

Capacitors are one of the most common passive electrical components that are extensively used in all kinds of electronic circuits. In this project, we will discuss a technique of building a digital capacitance meter using a PIC microcontroller. This project can measure capacitance values from 1 nF to 99 μF, with a resolution of 1 nF. The technique is based on measuring the time elapsed when a capacitor is c ...
