Wearable multimeter for embedded engineers

Wearable multimeter for embedded engineers

By eeNews Europe



FOVEA, the wearable embedded analyzer promises a few primary things to make embedded work easier. It moves the multimeter display to a location that’s much closer to where the probes are being held, and also with almost the same focal distance. It focuses on lower currents and voltages as seen in modern embedded electronics and it integrates digital features together with traditional analog features.

The Fovea is developed as an easy-to-use multimeter/analyzer with convenience features that we would’ve expected to be commonplace today.  The meter can alert you that you’ve got a measurement within a certain tolerance? It also allows you to directly test PWM signals, and can generate pulses and PWM signals?  Another feature is to measure current across a pre-installed shunt resistor on development boards, so you don’t have to keep breaking a circuit connection to measure current.

Launched via Kickstarter this week the Fovea wearable multimeter is available from $125 or roughly £98 for early bird backers and worldwide shipping is expected to take place during October 2019.
