Inductor Testing 4/12/2016
Testing Conditions: set output of the function generator to 50 ohm, with a sine wave frequency of 20kHz, 1Vp-p
The frequency is adjusted until the sine wave has a 0.5Vp-p wave. This frequency is then used to calculate the inductance.
L = 4.57/f (L in Henry and f in Hz) or
L = 4570/f (L in uH and f in KHz)
