4x4x4x4x4 Shunts

Modular swappable

Found some cheap 6 position shunt jumpers at These are a fraction of the cost of new. Used these on a set of 4x4x4x4x4 PCBs. Only needed a 4 position jumper, but these fit fine and are really cheap.

The four assembled PCBs separated.

Bottom view of the 4 PCBs. Jumpers are installed on one side of each PCB. The header pins were the ones that came with Pro Micro clones. I snapped each 12 position pin into three 4 pin sections.

All 4 PCBs connected.

Side view. The jumpers make good electrical connections but do not physically hold the pieces together well. A bottom plate is necessary.
