Sunday Soldering 2015/02/15

The garage is warming up slightly so this week I soldered up a couple of breadboard bound things.

First up was making the 2mm pitch ESP8266 ESP-07 breadboard friendly. Some have gone for mounting the module on adaptor plates or using stripboard and soldering wires over to 0.1″ pitch pins. I opted for a low tech approach and just soldered a cut in half male-male “Dupont jumper wire” ribbon cable to the pins.

Second up is yet another Arduino clone, this time the Deek-Robot Pro Mini (ATmega328P).

As normal I used some 0.1″ socket strips to hold the pins in place, sadly the A4 and A5 pins are slightly offset from the rest so they couldn’t be “tied in” to the other pins to keep them in place.

They’re looking a lot more breadboard friendly once the supplied pins are soldered on.

Although not labelled these are 8Mhz, 3.3v Models (a job for the Sharpie).
