Choice

There was a need for a programming connection to the devices.  The REDFIT IDC SKEDD has been chosen to that purpose.

Alternatives are : using push pogo-pins (which need some custom fixture), or using edge mounted DB9-connectors, which don't provide reliable connections.

Mounting to the IDC

To mount the SKEDD to the IDC, special tooling is "needed".  A cheaper way of mounting these connectors goes as follows:

Mounted SKEDD
AVRISP MkII with mounted SKEDD connector
