Minuscule Prototyping and Stonehenging
Prototyping! Hours of mindless gazing at the CAD system screen, the slight waver when ordering parts and PCB and finally ‘fingers crossed’ when flipping the On switch of the lab supply, powering up your newly designed and freshly built-up project. Often followed by a ‘back to the drawing board’, or, if you’re in luck, back to the solder station to check solder joints and potential shorts between a couple of SMD IC pins.
