whats the word cheater, been over a month since your last post on this one?


I've got a whole pile soldered up. :)

Problem is programming them now.
I need to figure out a way to attach the programmer without soldering anything.
Its difficult. :(


How about pogo pins a.k.a. bed of nails?


Copper finishing nails and a block of wood make an ideal test bed.
I find the easiest method is to place the PCB over the block of wood and drill _tiny_ holes through any vias/holes in the board and through the wood (use a drill press). From this I can usually bang copper nails in nice and straight.

How you wire the test bed is an exercise for the reader. Perhaps an Arduino pumping data into the board and also emulating an HD44780 comparing input to expected output?
