If you like happy, easy to build projects, this is not for you. This is only for people who like to grind their teeth and pull out hair.
MakersBox has shared project on OSH Park:
Be warned that trying to hand solder a 0201 package may be considered evidence of insanity and get you committed to bad places by your loved ones or arch nemesis.
Here’s a video of the board in operation:
It used to be hot air soldering gear was exotic, but not anymore. There are plenty of relatively inexpensive choices. Many of these appear to be the same despite having different brand names and model numbers. One that is common and inexpensive is the 858D. These run about $50. [Gabse] has one and decided to…
We think of helping hands as those little alligator clips on a metal stand. They are cheap and fall over, so we tend to buy them and don’t use them. However, if you are willing to put $35 or $40 into it, you can get the newer kind that have–well–tentacles–on a heavy base. [Archie_slap] didn’t…
Surface mount PCBs (Part 1) If you look at a circuit board today, you’ll see a beautiful array of surface mount chips and components, including very fine 0.5mm or even 0.4mm leaded devices and BGAs. Some of these ‘exotic’ devices can contain really advanced technology such as high speed ARM microprocessors, flash and high capacity […]
I’ve been soldering for a long time, and I take pride in my abilities. I won’t say that I’m the best solder-slinger around, but I’m pretty good at this essential shop skill — at least for through-hole and “traditional” soldering; I haven’t had much practice at SMD stuff yet. I’m confident that I could make a…
Small microcontroller board that could run Arduino and help you learn, teach others and make things
The Tinusaur is powered by the Atmel ATtiny85 microcontroller.
We want to bring the cost down to $3 for the basic “lite” boards
and allow more people to be able to get them.
