Fast Reliable Vias
(Summer Circuits 2010 article)
There are several techniques for providing lab-grade contacts from one track side to the other on DIY printed circuit boards. They range from thin wire or solder pins through pressed-in hollow rivets (e.g. from Bungard) and through-contact sleeves (e.g. from ELV) to through-contact rivets (e.g. LPKF ‘EasyContac’). These ‘vias’ can also be produced using electrical techniques or with solder paste.
