Most microcontrollers support the SWD protocol as a convenient method to program and debug the chip. If you are making a custom PCB for a product or project, it's a good idea to add an SWD programming header to the board. PogoProg Model B is designed for use with such a 4-pin 2.54mm header that uses the SWDIO, SWDCLK, VDD and GND pins. (Of course you can use this programmer for any 4 signal lines, as long as the pitch is compatible.)
We design a lot of custom hardware and it's a common practice to add an SWD header to a PCB. We've been making do with make-shift programmers for a while now. We finally decided that it would be a good idea to make a well-designed product that would be helpful to the maker community at large.
We've taken care to design PogoPin with ergonomics and aesthetics in mind. Pogo pins are expensive and inconvenient to source in small quantities, so we believe that providing a pre-soldered inexpensive programmer could be beneficial.
PogoProg is Open Source Hardware, and you can find the design files in the link below.

I am a software engineer and Embedded Systems consultant based in Bangalore, India. I have a Bachelor of Technology from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, and an MS from Pennsylvania State University, USA. I worked in the software industry in the San Francisco Bay Area for about 6 years before returning to India in 2004.
I have been a tinkerer since I was a teenager building electronic circuits, and continued this trend with programming in college. Around 2012, I started electronut.in – a blog on electronics, microcontrollers, and programming. The blog lead to the formation of Electronut Labs, and our first successfully crowdfunded product snapVCC (a power supply for Makers). The blog also let to my first book Python Playground (No Starch Press) which has sold close to 10,000 copies and has been translated to three languages.
Electronut Labs is now a small business in Bangalore and we are focused on creating innovative electronics hardware.
