I spent my evenings over Memorial Day weekend working on a customized fixture designed to make programming and testing the electronics of our Question Block Lamp really easy. As part of our plan to bring the lamps back into production, we decided that a custom programming fixture would go a long way towards helping our outsourcing partner get exactly what we want quickly and without the difficulty of communication.
We love using arduino’s as stand-alone programmers for test jigs! So much that we wrote a tutorial, so check it out:
