I have been going through the datasheet and this seems perfect device for my needs, however i did not see explicit mentioning of measuring inductive reactance. I am interested in setting up a test jig for 0.5H coils with a DCR of about 30 to 40 ohms (ferrite core). It seems to me that this IC can perform the task however I would like some sort of confirmation prior to purchase.

 

2nd question regarding the evaluation package. I've noticed that it comes complete with PC software to conduct tests. I will be interested in lowering the minimal measurable impedance by adding the buffer as suggested in the datasheet, can I use the software to read these values or does it, from any reason, support only values above 1Kohm?
