Come learn surface-mount soldering and put together an Arduino Leonardo
clone from scratch!
I and others will be doing Surface-mount CHM tomorrow with LeOlympia
boards (an Arduino Leonardo clone made by Olympia Circuits)
these boards are great because they have USB built-in and can be
programmed with only a mini-USB cable. In addition to working like a
normal arduino they can also pretend to be a USB keyboard or mouse or MIDI
controller or whatever you want.
they also have an RGB LED and a general-purpose button, and a second row
of pins to be compatible with standard breadboards.
0. What do we provide: (approximately 15 kits available)
- Circuit Board and components for a complete LeOlymplia board (an Arduino
- solder paste, solder mask, a squeegee, a few sets of tweezers
- a hot plate for soldering everything that way
- soldering irons and solder and flux for finishing up the board
1. What do you need:
- Previous experience with soldering, so you can fix imperfect connections
on very small components
- Patience to populate the board with small components with tweezers
- good eyesight or reading glasses to be able to see small parts
3. When: Monday, March 3rd, 2014 starting at 6:00 PM
4. Where: Noisebridge, 2169 Mission St., 3rd floor
