This device attaches to the 26 pin IDC male header at the rear of your Maximite or DuinoMite. It also has provision for a 30 pin header that is compatible with the CGMMSTICK1 pinout.
Mick Gulovsen designed a tester PCB (called Test-A-Mite) that will put the MaxiMite and DuinoMite through its paces and test the following features are working correctly on our `mites.
Digital Input & Output
It also has a few LED Demo routines for Fun and lets face it who doesnt like fun..
Fun LED chases as follows:
Simple LED Chase
LED Bar Graph Display
LED Cross Over
All information can be found HERE including some short video clips of a DuinoMite-mini connected to the Test-A-Mite doing each of the Fun LED chases
The schematic and part list is all available above so it is not too hard to make your own, or PCBs are available from Dontronics for $5.95AUD, or $7.95AUD including World wide Postage in a LETTER
This PCB can also be used as a CGMMSTICK1 to 26 pin MaxiMite & DuinoMite IDC connector adapter board.
This PCB can also be used as a MaxiMite or DuinoMite 26 Pin IDC Connector to SimmStick adapter board.
We can post off the Test-a-Mite bare printed circuit board in a letter, world wide at a very cheap rate. In fact, we will do it for an extra $2. See this Page for details:
This is an all through hole design, so the user can build it easily themselves. Anyone who has done a little electronics work, should have very little trouble soldering this kit together.
The board measures 81.3mm by 71.1mm (3.2" by 2.8") , 1.6mm thickness.
As many parts may be awkward to chase up, we have given detailed instructions on where they can be obtained in the PDF manual.
The parts we do have readily available are listed in the bundled groups of prices below. This includes a R/A 26 pin IDC female connector, and a R/A 26 pin IDC male connector for the input and output of this board.
You may also like to purchase a 26 pin 10cm IDC Female to Female header cable. This may be handy if your board design doesn't allow the Test-a-Mite to plug straight into the MaxiMite, or DuinoMite board. At times, power cables, USB cables, or other connectors, may be blocking your path. Check this out. You may need a cable.
Prices: We have set up prices starting at $5.95 for a PCB only, to $12.95 for the parts we have available:
Bare Test-a-Mite PCB: $5.95AUD
Bare Test-a-Mite PCB
Bundle A: $9.95AUD
Bare Test-a-Mite Printed Circuit Board, plus a 26 pin 10cm IDC Female to Female header cable.
Bundle B: $8.95AUD
Includes Test-a-Mite PCB plus a R/A 26 pin IDC female connector, and a R/A 26 pin IDC males connector.
Bundle C: $12.95AUD
IncludesTest-a-Mite PCB plus a 26 pin 10cm IDC Female to Female header cable, plus a R/A 26 pin IDC female connector, and a R/A 26 pin IDC males connector.
The Bundled kits do not include all parts. Only the items included above.
From Mick Gulovsen: Also dont put 10 way switches that are side activated (As I did in my photo) whilst they are high quality switches it is hard to select them in the area where the links are for Freq/count/period tests. Slider switches are the best.

I have to admit the takeup of the T-A-M has been less than enthusiastic, especially as I have mine almost permanently plugged into my DM as the first thing I do when testing new firmware is run it through its paces..
Well Mick, I took the plunge on T-A-M and I found it invaluable to help my understanding of the capabilities of the various firmware incarnations on my Mini DM... once I fixed up some dodgy soldering on my part. So, I found it a worthwhile exercise.
