NEW GUIDE: How to Build a Testing Jig @adafruit #adafruit #manufacturing #testing
If you’re a first time product designer and you’re spending all your time on the product itself, you might forget just how much time and effort it can take to set up a good test jig.
This NEW GUIDE takes you through the basics of soldering a generic type of electronics testing fixture, allowing you to test many components of your board all at once.
There are a lot of things to consider when creating a test jig, ranging from test coverage and operator fatigue, to throughput and reliability. In some cases, a product designer may spend even more time designing a test jig than they spend designing the product itself!
Check out this guide to learn more about what goes into building your own custom testing jig on the Adafruit Learn System!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
