He soon abandoned the Arduino on cost grounds, preferring to use a PIC.
Most of them can be obtained cheaply from Ebay.

When soldering components onto the board, I use Blu-Tak to hold them in firmly in place while I turn the board over to solder the legs.The USB port can also be used to reflash the firmware if needed.It was fortunate that I could find an u8glib font that was still pregnancy membrane sweep at home legible but allowed me to display ten bands simultaneously on that little screen (although it wasn't monospace, which caused some grief).One of the requirements was to develop a sensor which can be interfaced with human skin directly and used as touch interface.This can be moved left and right with the encoder.Then carry out measurements at the centre of each frequency band for each resistor.Required Components, resistors: 10k, 1M, and.3k, capcitors: 100pf, 10nf (.01uf).I have estimated calibration values for the new bands, based on interpolation / extrapolation of the existing calibration values.The way human is touching the electrode, or the amount of skin contacted with the electrode will produce a different output. .I do these layouts the simple way, using squared paper and a pencil.1.2 GD system architecture, standard way of doing capacitive touch sensing is by using one fixed frequency.Thus the diodes are operating in their non-linear regions and my first version of this system tended to under-read vswr.
For the final job I soldered wires straight onto the encoder.
This allows you to construct correction curves for actual versus reported vswr, which can then be put into the Arduino sketch to apply correction on the fly.
I seriously considered leaving the analyser as a bare board, as it was only likely to be used occasionally.
All of the worldwide communications that interested me take place on the HF bands (3-30 MHz).
Interestingly this is all achieved through single electrode. .Both of them have been highly inspired by touché and they constructed much cheaper version of the touché.These aren't add-ons; they are fully integrated into the operation of the analyser.If you connect your PC to the USB socket on the rear of the analyser (i.e.Cannot retrieve the latest commit at this time.
