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
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
