Prototypes of Smart Tweezers have been designed back in early 2000s. One of the latest pre-production demo units had a hand-carved housing and hand-made tweezer-type probes. The design was using Atmel AT90S4433 8-bit Microcontroller with 4K bytes of In-System programmable flash memory. This is a high-performance and low-power AVR® 8-bit RISC Architecture processor. The unit was powered by AA alcaline battery

It is obvious that in the course of the design evolution the components also evolved quickly so that in about 2003 Smart Tweezers finaly were looking somewhat close to what it is today. The latest pre-production units have been nanufactured using 3D printing.

Smart Tweezers ST-2

In model ST-2 significant improvements had been achieved in both accuracy and mechanical design. Replaceable tweezer tips had been introduced as well as a better insulation of the handles released in 2007. Initially it was a ROHS complient device but due to LCD soldering problems we eventually changed the display . Here is the Manual and the Quick Reference for this model.

ST-2 Measuring Capacitance

Replaceable tweezer probes improved the device life-span due to an ability to replace the probes after the gold plating was worn-out. Previously the whole introduced as well as a better insulation of the handles. Initially it was a ROHS complient device but due to LCD soldering problems we eventually changed the display . Here is the Manual and the Quick Reference for this model.
