Whats the processor? and will it be open to custom firmware?

STM32L152D
Schematic and protocols will be open, not sure about firmware.
Standard low cost ST ARM programmer header.

The only STM32L152xD device in LQFP64 package is STM32L152RDT6

There's no challenge in that.
The 121GW is very much worth the effort!

Indeed, it's fun to have been part of the process.
The uRuler is coming as well, just have to think of a few more things to add.
More centimeters?

Something that will be a world first in rulers

Transistor tester?

 :-DD Now that's a quality multimeter must-have feature, for sure! It's how you know if a DMM is any good or not :-DD

Will it have a dBm mode? That's something I use all the time - I do a lot of audio work.

In the case of Fluke, you need to stretch to a 187/9 or 287/9 to get that (and you know how these eat batteries!). The classic 8050A and 8060 models have it, of course, along with the 45. I use them all, along with an 8920A for wide BW stuff.

As it's only a bit of code, it's a shame that it isn't more widespread at the saner end of the market. I suppose a lack of a "dB" annunciator on the chosen LCD might rule it out?

For me, it'll turn a "maybe" into a "definitely"  :-+

Hope I'm right here -- pretty sure it does have dBm mode  ;D

Thanks for that - where did you pick up that information from?

I'm not in the know or anything, but there's nothing I can see on the range switch labels indicating that capability:

I think the "REL" key is THE key here (see what I did here?)

Hmm - plenty of meters have have Relative mode without dBm.

Dave?

Looks interesting. I suppose all the guys on the "Test Equipment Anonymous (TEA) group therapy thread" have submitted their pre-orders   ;D

Wow, didn't know that! Pity it is obsolete... Now we'll just have to wait on Dave's meter. Bugger! ;)

It was also sold in Europe as the Voltcraft 608, in case someone is looking for a second-hand unit.

Drop test?
IP test?

Pity you did not borrow a screwdriver form someone.  A photo of Dave's face seeing it taken to appart and and all the bits spread over a dirty bar top would have been priceless.  We need a test of it's 'put back together' and still work properly properties.
