After several years of use of my "PCB Workstations" in the field of digital electronics, the PCB Workstation with Nano-Probes represents the best solution to work with electronic boards and electronic devices equipped with SMD components that are extremely small and difficult to access for many of the most widespread laboratory test probes.
One of the main new features of this tool is the use of acupuncture needles as test probes. Thanks to their excellent physical and mechanical properties, these needles allow the best electrical connection between tiny SMD electronic components and electronic laboratory instruments, such as oscilloscopes, logic states analyzers, ICs programmers and memory chip readers.
The preferred size of acupuncture needles is 0.30x30mm. The needles must have a metallic handle and a round head to allow the soldering of the electric cable.
Another important improvement is the adoption of new base support having 8 slits instead of 4. In this way, the base allows to accommodate PCBs even of irregular shape without problems, moreover, it is more rigid and more stable allowing to work in the best conditions. I suggest applying 8 rubber pads under the base (8-10mm diameter, 2 on each side).
In addition to the Standard PCB Holders, the new Large PCB Holders are now also available, allowing an even larger electronic device to be held firmly in place on the base support. The flat face must be covered with an adhesive soft rubber pad. The assembly of the PCB holders to the base requires wing nuts (5mm) and hex bolts (5×12mm).
The articulated crane arms have been completely redesigned. The base element has now a reinforced pivot by means of a screw to be screwed into the internal hole (use a self-tapping flat countersunk head screw 2.6x10mm). Moreover, the base element is provided with a handle to easily rotate the crane arm around its vertical axis. The vertical element has a lower height, thus allowing to put the whole PCB Workstation under a microscope to magnify the PCB working area. The horizontal element is provided with a special flexible holder for acupuncture needles that can be easily removed and replaced; moreover, it is provided with 4 cable holders instead of 2 to better accommodate the cable soldered to the needle. The assembly of the crane arms requires M4 wing nuts (4mm), hex bolts (4×10 mm) and flat washers.
