Soldering on 2006 May 19 15:01Posted by diamond in : Work , add a comment
I’ve been doing some work on fixing my microcontroller programming error. I managed to gather together the components needed for the SPI cable circuit. Here are some pictures i’ve taken over the last week while working on this:
- A closeup of the transistor i had to work with: here
- Another photo of the transistor beside my hand, to give some idea of the scale: here
- The transistor with 3 wires soldered on after about half an hour of fumbling: here
- The completed cable: top, bottom, and a closeup of the connector
And, if i thought the transistor was difficult to work with, i’ve just found out i have to solder directly onto one of the microcontroller pins. That’s gonna be a laugh.
