Sunday Soldering

 

 

 

 

 

 

Soldering Sunday PCBsI thought it was about time I assembled some of the boards – so today I assembled the latest revision of the Low voltage power distribution PCB, LED indicator boards and partially an adapter board.

 

 

 

Low voltage power distributionOn the latest revision of the Low voltage power distribution (from DirtyPCBs) holes have been added to allow the screws to tighten all the way down as I feared shorting out the PSU if I get overzealous. I’ve also used my 3d printed 5cm PCB ends to give the solder side some clearance.

 

 

 

LED IndicatorI’ve had these 10 LED indicator boards (from ITEAD Studio) for well over a year so I thought it was about time I assembled a few with different options.

The black 0.1″ headers (both male and female) are common cathode and the blue pin header is common anode to give a little flexibility when using them. For those with good eyesight you may spot the PCB was designed for 1206 resistors and LEDs in mind but I managed to get 0806 resistors onto the pads so used those since I now have 680R on reals.

 

 

0.1" headers to 1mm socket adapterThe little adapter board converts from a 6 way 1mm connector (SM06B-SRSS-TB) to 0.1″ although I have currently misplaced the SMD 0.1″ right angle pin headers so these was left for another day.
