DT006/Atmel ATS2313-10 Assembly

Started by Jayabharath G July 27, 2004
Firstly, Hello to All. This is my first post on this newsgroup.

I bought a DT006 "Bare board" http://www.dontronics.com/dt006.html with 
Atmel ATS2313-10 & a 10Mhz resonator from Dontronics.com for a fun home 
project. I guess I mistook the bare board somehow for a assembled board 
with all components.

Now, that my order has arrived.. I want to assemble all the components 
myself on the bare PCB.

I have never soldered any components on PCB.. ever.
1) I am need help ....to any good resources for this. Note: I have been 
Googling this but I can really find a good read for dummies.
2) what tools (e.g., solder gun etc) should I buy and any consideration 
I should make during this activity.

Thanks!!

Exchange your kit for a fully assembled one ! Sam

With care a cheap soldering iron like one of the Antex range could be used for this sort of thing. You ought to practice assembling something simpler first, like one of the Velleman kits. They probably come with instructions for beginners. Leon Leon

I'd second this. With the board as small as it is, you'll surely screw it up on your first try (as I once did). I suggest you practice soldering some circuits first. What you will need is : 1) A pencil tip soldering iron (20 to 30Watts max) 2) Solder wire 3) A damp cloth to clean the tip and maybe a disposable nose & mouth mask along with goggles so you don't inhale the lead fumes. Be careful not to touch the iron, it is hot as hell!
