Arduino Shield for custom board CPLD programming and testing using pogo pins

Marcelo Jimenez wrote a post about a shield he did using pogo pins to program and test a CPLD based board. The photo above shows the support for the board to be programmed with the pogo pins at the center, the board itself and the top shield. I have used two identical shield boards and have […]

Using pogo-pins for hardware testing

Here’s how Spark Fun uses pogo-pins to quickly test their products. Pogo pins are spring loaded pins that make quick connections to PCB test points. Test beds are made from a PCB that has pogo-pins aligned with with contacts on the device to test. Sometimes SparkFun includes a microcontroller on the test bed to interface […]
