UPDATE 8/16/2008: added images of different board configurations in last step.The RBBB from Modern Device Company is a wonderful little Arduino clone....
Here are all the parts of the RBBB kit. Included are: 2 10k resistors (Brown, Black, Orange) 2 .1ufd ceramic capacitors 2 47 ufd electrolytic capac...
Solder in the resistors. Orientation does not matter, here.
Next add in the ceramic capacitors. These can also be placed in any orientation.
Orientation matters! The longer lead is the positive side. The picture shows the correct orientation. There is also a + sign on the board to show wher...
Add in the switch and the power regulator. The switch is rectangular and will snap in place with little effort. If it doesn't seem to fit, turn it 9...
Mount the two electrolytic capacitors as shown. As with the LED, the longer lead is the positive side.
In mounting the IC socket you may wish to space it off the board a bit. This makes the pin labels a bit easier to read. I used leads trimmed from prev...
Here you have lots of options. The kit supplies you with male header pins, but depending on your project you may not need any pins. You may also want ...
Mount the ceramic resonator. Orientation doesn't matter.
Be careful with the orientation of the diode. Mount as shown with the white stripe towards the board.
Solder in the power socket. See later steps for other power supply options.
You have some options here, also. The kit provides right angle male headers which can be mounted as shown. Another option is to use some of the straig...
At this point it would be a good idea to give your board a good scubbing with rubbing alcohol and a toothbrush. This will remove any solder flux from ...
Notice the notch in one end of the ATMEG168 chip. Remember the notch in the socket? Orient the chip with the socket and gently press it into place. Yo...
Your board is now fully assembled and ready to be programmed! Remember I mentioned some options for the power supply? If you wish to have an even sma...
Here are examples of different board configurations. At the bottom is a board assembled in the original form. In the middle is a kit I will be using w...
