Abstract

This fixture measures in an easy, fast and accurate manner the height of plural projecting pins arranged in a linear array, such as, for example, the linear array of projecting input/output (I/O) pins soldered into respective plated thru holes (PTHs) of a printed circuit (PC) board or the like. In the fixture (Fig. 1) each of its plural "floating" precision length pins 1 (see detail Fig. 3) is positioned over and placed in contact with the end of a respective one of the I/O pins P of PC board B.
