Last week I finally started designing a project I’ve had in mind for several years. The concept is simple:
A basic breakout circuit board that I can connect to any device under test (DUT) and the result is many spare connections- some with on/off switches already in series and others unpopulated to add any components, connections and measuring equipment I desire.
The PCB design was done in KiCad which turned out pretty great I trhink:
Boards should be here by the end of the week and I will start on the video. As always- source files are in my GitHub repo so you can make your own too.
I bought a budget priced variable transformer from Amazon but apparently it arrived defective. In this video we troubleshoot the problems then repair and test the unit. No need to return it when we can fix it ourselves.
