The introduction of Arduino controller has sparked interest among hobbyist, school students and engineering students to learn embedded programming. One of the problem face by the new learners of Arduino is to check, whether the Arduino electronic components used is fit for use. This project attempts to introduce an all-in-one component checker that able to identify whether the electronic component is functional or faulty by inserting the component to the given jig. This first version of E-TESTER can test 12 commonly used electronic components and modules. The result section shows the simulation and the hardware implementation on different scenarios.
