Andy’s acrylic case for this Nanocounter might just seem like a regular case, but it’s the reasons why he chose to design his case the way he did that’s especially interesting:
My main concern with the case design was how to deal with the force exerted by repeated connection and disconnection of cables from the BNC connectors. With just the bare PCB I can grip the back of the BNC connector housing while manipulating the connector thereby preventing force being exerted on the PCB through the BNC connector solder joints.
