First off, a little announcement - SparkFun offices will be closing today at 3 PM for a
meeting server upgrade event, ok, we admit it, a party. It's the annual SparkFun end-of-summer party and we are going to be cutting out a little bit early - so be advised no one will be answering the phones. Of course, you can still place orders!
Ok, on to serious business - multimeters! The multimeter is a great tool for electronic enthusiasts. When it comes to testing parts and saving time, they are worth their weight in gold. But how, exactly, does one use a multimeter?
If no one ever explained to you how to use one of these great tools, it can be a little confusing to know exactly what you're measuring, how to interpret the numbers on the screen, and which setting to use when! With that in mind, Nate put together this tutorial explaining how to use a multimeter! We hope that it helps - happy testing!
