Default Re: How do I test integrated circuits with a multimeter?

you can't with the resistors and caps... they have to be out of circuit to be tested (otherwise you are testing the whole circuit, which often has other devices in parallel, messing up thee test)

as for ICs, depends on the IC. get a bench PSU, a solderless breadboard, and breadboard wires and build a sample circuit as per the device datasheet.
