Circuit is very simple. The generator uses a PIC12F629 microcontroller with clock frequency set by an external RC. Output frequency can be set trimmer P1 in the range of about 2 to 170 Hz. Oscillator frequency can be adjusted if you change C1 capacitance. Pulses are generated with a period of 200 Tcy. All pulses are of equal length. Output frequency is 800 times lower than the frequency of the oscillator.
Build Accurate LC Meter and start making your own coils and inductors. This LC Meter allows to measure incredibly small inductances making it perfect tool for making all types of RF coils. LC Meter can measure inductances starting from 10nH - 1000nH, 1uH - 1000uH, 1mH - 100mH and capacitances from 0.1pF up to 900nF. The circuit includes an auto ranging and reset function to make sure the readings are as accurate as possible ... [more]
