DMM at Lidl from Thursday this week
« on: February 05, 2018, 07:54:16 PM »

My trusty old Maplin soldiers on, but sometimes it's handy to have two, and this looks pretty decent for the price.
Looks from the illustration to have 4mm (banana) sockets, which I like on a meter.

Certainly looks good, and always amazed at how cheaply such things can be sold.

It has set me thinking, does anybody else remember a DVM from Sinclair (or was it Heathkit) late 1970s, probably retailing at a price similar to a contemporary colour TV?   Not sure if it was a diy kit, or ready made.  Anyway, the point was, even though logic chips were already ten a penny, and medium scale integration quite common in calculators, the device I recollect was built entirely using discreet components, individual transistors.    :o

A few minutes on Google has failed to find any evidence of said device.   Is it just another figment of my imagination?   ???

@4Candles, apols for verging slightly off topic.  Will gladly delete and repost as a new thread, if requested. :)

@7LM   Och, nae botha - the info is in the OP.


Can't help on the DVM. I can remember various digital devices of the period, but not any comprising entirely discrete components.
I do remember in the mid 70s my brother-in-law paying around 40 for a very basic CBM LED calculator for his cricket statistics!
