What is a microcontroller?
A microcontroller is a complete computer on a single chip. It can be programmed, much like a real computer. However, microcontrollers are much smaller than a real computer, in terms of the size of the program or the amount of memory. And the best part is they are much cheaper too! So, there is no mouse, keyboard, or disk drive. Instead, simple input and output simple devices, like switches, LEDs, or even a speaker, can be connected to a microcontroller. With one microcontroller and a handful of these simple devices, lots of really cool things are possible! Read More
Did not get a change to make it so thought would give it a go on my own. I do not claim to know much so please correct if I have something in wrong way or up side down.
The Mignonette Kit V2.0 comes with the following:
Step 1: Get Out the Tools
1. Soldering iron
Step 2: Put in Everything
The wires of all resistors should be bent down on both sides of the part, as shown. Another word for wires that come out of electronic parts is "leads" (pronounced "leeds").
This is the same with R2 and R3
Step 3: Now the Rest of Them
I have commented on images below what you should look out for.
Step 4: Adding Chips
Step 5: Finsihed
Please note this is just a very quick post on how I put it together and the images I got out of it.
