Great update to our tutorial, use extra-long headers to hold a board on a pogo pins testing jig. Starlino writes –
Adafruit has a nice tutorial on how to build a neat testing jig that allows you to test a breakout board without having to actually solder the header.
So I decided to build one for the the acc_gyro boards. But how do you hold the board in place ? Using screws is secure but takes long time to put a board in and out. I needed a faster way to test a larger amount of boards.
