A look at the Teensy 3.0 testbed of nails

Posted on Wednesday, September 12th, 2012 in Arduino, dev boards, testing by the machinegeek

SJaak refers us to this article by Paul Stoffregen about how they test new Teensy 3.0 boards using a “testbed of nails.” Essentially the Teensy 3.0 crew has developed this testing interface which gives them a way to test every new board by bringing it into contact with the test jig’s pins. The result is a quick go/no-go indication via the green and red LEDs on the testing board.

More information can be found on the project’s Kickstarter page.

    Nice layout, just needs two more boards on top. One to align the test board and another below it to hold it at the right height. You would just stand the boards right on top of each other. Sparkfun has a nice article about how they do their test jigs the same way. I have also made many jigs at work the same way with a clamp mounted to the pcb to hold the board.
