Siborg Systems Inc. has released an updated version of the LCR-Reader, the Colibri. After a year of availability, the LCR-Reader has gotten some tweaks to offer a better experience for customers.
The Colibri offers the same basic accuracy of 1% as the LCR-Reader, as well as the same automatic component identification and instataneous results. The main differences between the Colibri and the LCR-Reader is the ability to select the test freqency as well as the measurement mode to provide more specific measurement capabilities. On the LCR-Reader only the measurement mode was changeable by pressing the button, with the device cycling through ‘AM’, ‘L’, ‘R’, ‘C’. The Colbri cycles as such; ‘AM’, ‘L’ 1kHz (default), 100 Hz, 10 kHz, ‘C’ 1kHz, 100 Hz, 10 kHz, etc. Also added was the ability to reset the device to fully automatic default settings by pressing and holding the device for a few seconds. Colibri comes with precision gold-plated tips which better improve the ability to hold components.
Siborg Systems Inc. has released a new Smart Tweezers Maintenance video for users looking for a how-to or maintaining their devices. The new video covers how to replace the screen, flex cable, tips and battery for both Smart Tweezers ST-5S and LCR-Reader. This video will help customers replace key parts of the device instead of sending back to Siborg in Canada, or their local distributor.

Siborg has posted a new video to youtube demonstrating Smart Tweezers ST-5S model in action.
The ST-5S is the newest model in the Smart Tweezers LCR-meters family; this model is an updated take on the previous ST-5 model, offering all the same features and functions but with a new design. The new design matches that of the LCR-Reader; a 1 oz. weight and bright OLED display. This model also features a new joystick-like navigation that allows users to easily switch modes (auto, L, C, R etc.), test signals and tolerances, etc. by just pressing the button directionally, instead of having to access the menus.
The video demonstrates what comes with the device: a manual, a quick reference chart, the NIST calibration certificate, power source, and the hard-shelled carrying case with the device inside. The video also shows the device during measurements; showing off its automatic evaluations and instantaneous results. The video also demonstrates an extensive view of the menus and options available on the device.

Siborg Systems Inc. and the Institute of Automation and Electrometry of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Novosibirsk, Russia have developed a verification tool for Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader.
“Although all Smart Tweezers PCBs are calibrated after the PCB is made, the verification jig is still a desirable tool for incoming control and troubleshooting devices returned due to a failure or malfunction. It can also be used for periodical traceable calibration if the jig is calibrated by a certified agency. The best thing about the jig is that it can be used for any model of Smart Tweezers after the ST-3 where, for the first time, the 4-wire connection was utilized.” says Michael Obrecht, the Director of R&D at Siborg.
The jig uses 16 known components: 8 resistors, 4 capacitors and 4 inductors of different values in Smart Tweezers measurement range. The device being tested is connected to the jig using a 4-wire connection. When on, the jig connects to every component, with the results shown on the Smart Tweezers’ display allowing for comparisons to be made between the measurement values and the known values.
The 4-wire connection is an essential part of the jig; this connection reduces the noise generated by the connections on the PCB. The connections are controlled by a microprocessor and a set of 32 relays. After a switch, the micro-controller goes into the sleep mode in order to reduce the effect of the digital circuitry on the measurement.
