Software engineer Kerry Wong as designed and documented an LC meter (that's inductance and capacitance) that also measures freqency. It is based on the ATmega328 microcontroller and uses Arduino libraries for the end results. This is an easy project to follow, and with some small effort the final results can look quite good, for example:

Furthermore you can save a lot of money by doing it yourself, and learn a lot during the process. So to get started, visit Kerry's blog here. And for more news, updates and items of interest.please follow us on twitter, Facebook and Google+.

To build your own LC meter, we have the components, a huge range of enclosures, and of course the ATmega328. Plus a full range of LCD modules including an I2C-controlled unit from DFrobot that is simple to use and doesn't use any digital I/O pins:
