Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Parts Included
POWERTIP PC1601A LCD screen module Variety of nuts and bolts 2X 6 way male pin connectors 16 way female pin connecter Printed PCB board 100uf electrolytic capacitor 1uf electrolytic capacitor 4x KRS0610 momentry push buttons 14 way IC chip holder PIC16C505 chip Variable resistor 1K 2x 100nf resin bead capacitors 5x 10K resistors 2x BAT85 Zener diode AAA battery holder
Step 2: Solder Resistors on
First you are going to have to solder the 5 10K resistors onto the main PCB.
Step 3: Solder Diodes on
No you are going to need to solder the diodes onto the PCB WARNING! - make sure the diodes go on the RIGHT way!
Step 4: Resin Capacitors
Now you have to solder the resin capacitors onto the PCB.
Step 5: Solder the IC Chip Holder on
Now you are going to have to solder on the IC chip holder WARNING!- make sure you get the notch the right way. Also DO NOT put the IC chip into the holder until you have finished soldering the whole project or you will destroy the chip.
Step 6: Solder the Variable Resistor on
Now you are going to have to solder on the variable resistor onto the PCB
Step 7: Now Solder on the Push Button
Now you are going to have to solder on the push button.
Step 8: Now Solder on the Electrolytic Capacitors
Now you are going to have to solder on the electrolytic capacitor. WARNING!- make sure the longer lead goes into positive in the PCB.
Step 9: Solder the Female Pin Connecter Onto the LCD Module
Now you are going to have to solder the female pin connectors onto the LCD module.
Step 10: Insert the Two Male Pin Connecters
Now you are going to have to insert the two male pin connectors into the female connecter WARNING- make sure you put the pins in the END of the female connecter
Step 11: Battery Holder
Now secure and solder the battery holder onto the PCB.
Step 12: Now Assemble the Two Different PCB and Solder the LCD
Join the two halts and solder them together. (Where the pen Is is where you need to solder!)
Step 13: Insert IC Chip
Now insert the IC into the IC chip holder
Step 14: Finished Thing!
This is the fully completed message board. I am having a few issues at the moment of how to program it but I will get there in the end! http://www.velleman.eu/products/view/?id=349830
