Testing is an important step in board manufacturing. And it can be super tricky on a fully populated PCB. So how can you test connections when you have an assortment of components blocking your probe?
These “mini loop type” Small PCB Test Points easily snap in to your project, and they’re ideal for ultra-low profile surface-mount testing! They will attach to J hooks, EZ hooks, grabbers, alligator clips, tips, probes, what have you!
You can solder them in but we found that for ‘standard’ 0.04″ drilled proto holes that we use in our CAD software, they hold in place on their own as long as you don’t yank on them too hard. And the plastic bushing is 0.1″ diameter so you can fit them in side by side in standard 0.1″ header
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
