I need a way to rapidly test newly assembled boards without soldering any wires on the connection pads.
So I made this test jig. I just plop in the newly assembled SC-1 board, hook up XLR connections, and apply power. If successful, release the board, pack and ship it out.
The breadboard area is for future use... i.e. creating INSERT modules.
This test jig can also be used to test newly assembled PSU boards.
The pogo pins I bought from eBay. These are spring loaded contacts with very fine and very sharp tips. They make contact into the PCB under test, and apply pressure to it for a good, reliable connection.
The yellow PCB holder keeps the PCB under test secure.
Yeah... I'm gearing up for some major assembly work so I can start selling ready-made preamp units in a rack case.
