Abstract

Computer system designers require some form of card extension that would allow easy testing or probing of sensitive locations (circuits) on a printed circuit card. Any method of card probe must be reliable, provide easy access, have good electrical contact with the component pins under test, yet not disturb or alter machine operational characteristics so that troubleshooting/testing can be facilitated.
