Introduction: Mignonette Kit V2.0

Bought this kit at Electronics Workshop with Mitch Altman and Jimmie P Rodgers Post

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

Get out all your tools:

1. Soldering iron
2. Snips
3. Solder

Step 2: Put in Everything

Picture of Put in Everything

We will start with resistor R1. The colour bands, brown, black, orange, and gold indicate the value of the resistor. (10K Ohms in this case)

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

Now place all the rest of the item on the board and start to solder them in.

I have commented on images below what you should look out for.

Step 4: Adding Chips

Be very careful when putting these in the legs will have to be moved a little to fit into mounts.

Step 5: Finsihed

And many times later your are finished, 

Please note this is just a very quick post on how I put it together and the images I got out of it.

Could you add what this does and a picture of it lit-up?

The mignonette kit is meant to be a DIY handheld gaming system, much like the Meggy Jr. RGB kit. It has four buttons, and can be programmed with new games very easily. It is meant to be an introduction to soldering and programming. It has a bi-color LED display, so it's really not much to look at. Very cool though.

I bought one of these when he came down to Birmingham.

I'm not sure what I did but now it's not working :-( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjiAdUTd8qk
