  • "He's pulling an all-nighter" (working overtime)
  • "It's really pumping out the juice" (high-current power supply)
  • "That thing's been sucked dry" (battery is discharged)
  • "What's the insertion rate?" (how many components can be populated per minute?)
  • "Insert your probe into the slot" (test procedure)
  • "Tweak the cap to reach peak output" (adjust capacitor for maximum signal)
  • "Looks like he has a leaky cap" (the capacitor has failed)
  • "High-frequency emissions" (noisy circuit)
  • "Gender-bender" (cable adapter)
  • "Bit-bang" (emulate a serial port in software)
  • "Plug it in and gimme some juice" (turn it on)
