TESTING IC’s – also referred to as “CHIPS”An Integrated Circuit is also known as a “chip.” It might need eight pins or as many as forty. Point UÂ is a 1u electrolytic to reduce the impedance of the ability rail andÂ Point VÂ is a safety diode to forestall injury if the probe is linked to the supply around the mistaken method.
The measurement across a diode shouldn’t be a resistance-worth but a “voltage-drop” and that is why the needle swings almost full-scale. Sounds just like the motor connection is open or the wiring to the winding has opened up. If it was buzzing, it is recommend the capacitor or centrifugal change, but no sound in any respect is usually an open circuit.
SIMPLESTÂ TRANSISTOR TESTERThe simplest transistor tester uses a 9v battery, 1k resistor and a LED (any colour). However the analogue multimeter has an inner resistance of 100k and it creates a circuit shown inÂ C. At first I considered using a circuit that uses a PIC Microcontroller to perform the logic needed, but then I settled for a simple transistor circuit to do the job.
