Even with predominantly digital circuits, I am using inductors much more often than I used to, generally because of all the buck or boost converters (a recent board I was involved in has 12 different voltage rails — six of them needed just by the TFT LCD).
I've never seen a standard digital multimeter (DMM) with an inductance range. So I ended up buying a separate meter that does LC measurements.
However a lot of DMMs have a capacitance scale. Since capacitors and inductors can be thought of as mirror images of each other with voltage and current flipped, why don't DMMs include an inductance scale also? What's so difficult about measuring inductance that it is left off of DMMs and relegated to specialty meters?
Since inductance meters are usually LC meters (even LCR), do they measure capacitance in a different way than DMMs? Are they more accurate than the capacitance scale of a DMM?
