This time we have a DIY capacitance meter that’s remarkable for its accuracy, low cost and beautiful PCB design. It has a two-digit Dekatron-style display made from discrete LEDs, and zero (0) microcontrollers inside, yet achieves 5% accuracy across its range of 200 pF to 9.9 µF.

There are many capacitance meters around but few with such a fine PCB design and vintage readout as ours, so off to your free article right here.
