What is JIGMOD?

  • JIGMOD is a modular electronics construction system that makes it easier to build high quality electronic circuits.
Build a portable, self-powered Arduino system for servo testing.

Why use JIGMOD?   

  • Most electronic components aren't compatible with breadboards. JIGMOD bridges the gap between those components and your breadboard. 
  • Don't work hard - work smart! Avoid wasted time spent debugging and troubleshooting. 
  • Be amongst the first to use this revolutionary development platform. 
  • Develop circuits with high quality, reliable results every time 
  • Satisfy your curiosity easily 
  • Succeed in your innovations 
  • Maximize your ability to test and demonstrate your circuits

How does JIGMOD do it?

  • JIGMODs and the mounting configuration allows for stacking JIGMODs of the same size, revolutionizing the prototyping process
  • Wire-to-board connectors - make wire connections with the push of a finger! No screwdrivers are necessary for this operation. 
  • Pre-tapped drill holes in platforms allow versatile mounting configurations
  • Board-edge fasteners – allows 2 boards to utilize the same supports and increases parts per area.
  • High quality JIGMOD modules with high quality electronic components

Risks and challenges

Challenges:

- The polycarbonate material chosen for the platform and adapters is a great thing for JIGMOD and it has taken a lot of manufacturing refinement to get the platforms to mass production quality!

- The fastening method for JIGMOD's was originally going to be DIN Rail, but it was not the right solution. Board-edge half-hole mounting proved to be a huge step in the right direction.

- The design of the screw hole arrangement was developed over time to be compatible with a variety of JIGMOD sizes.

JIGMOD system has been fully designed, manufactured and tested with long-term success in mind. Our manufacturers have honed their processes, are producing high quality parts and are waiting for bulk orders right now!

DISCLAIMER – JIGMOD assumes no liability for experimentation carried out by users of its products. Building electronics can be dangerous. If you don’t know what you are doing, seek guidance from a professional. When using these products you accept all risk and full responsibility for any damages that may result.
