Debugging faults: always remember XJAnalyser!

The traditional technique for debugging printed circuit boards is to “observe” the state using oscilloscopes or multi-meters and deduce a fault. This method actually suppresses a very powerful engineering instinct that would help us a lot if we could only give it a better chance. […]
