I didn't make myself clear - what I meant was that that inductance should be
able to be measured by a processor based method, not that you would
necessarily directly translate the analog method.
eg something using V= L di/dt with a comparator detecting when current
reaches a certain level. Inductance is then inversely proportional to time
to trip point. Probably doable with not too much more than the processor.
(And probably exists as a practical circuit on a dozen websites already?)
