DIY 8051 Network Cable Tester

Posted March 24, 2014 by Chris

"Designed and built during October 2000, this was my first ever microcontroller based project. This one was inspired by an Edmund Scientific instruments catalog. I didn’t see anything like this in that catalog but there were a lot of nice, year 2000 modern multipole cable testers, that made me think and imagine what would be the simplest possible network cable tester that I could quickly build."
