  1. That’s awesome! In the US that would be sold for 10-100 times the cost, and take weeks to deliver. I’d be interested in a blog post on how you use it if you are up for sharing later.

  2. Yup, in the U.S. if you’re lucky a custom jig like that would cost you at least many hundreds of dollars and taken at least a week plus shipping time. But then again, in the U.S. there’s no demand for stuff like this anymore – there are very few people left in the U.S. that manufacture things… Sad.

  3. Technically he would have customized it for a PCB and included pins at same price but I am going for a generic tool to play with.

    1. Hi Ian,
      regarding this Test rig, could you share with us the name of the manufacture in Shenzhen?
      We need to order some similar test rig for one of our products.
      Many thanks in advance.

      1. Its from my test rig guy Alex. He also made a giant machine for us. If you send me an email to remind me, I’ll try to get you a business card the next time I’m in SEG building.

  4. I wonder if it would be a good idea to just put in a bunch, say 50 pcs, of pogopins in a grid and break all of them out to a cross-connect at the front. And then always use some of those pogopin-coordinates for test & programming pads on all pcb you make. That would make the jig truly universal for all DP boards.
