Preparation

Preamble : prepare before acting

In order to assemble the kit you will need the following tools:electronic_tools1_description

  • soldering iron
  • solder wire
  • flat pliers
  • cutting pliers
  • a multimeter (voltmeter, ohm-meter, shorts)

 

 

Sort the componematrix_ctrlr_building_parts6nts on a tray, and compare them to the parts-list. Make sure you’ve got the right amount of parts!

 

It’s a good idea to work on a clean table. Placing components on a tray allows you to pause your work and come back to it later if necessary.

The kitchen is the perfect place to find containers for components.

You will solder components from the shortest to the tallest.

Notice that some components are polarized and need to be inserted in a certain way (respective of their positive and negative leads) while others are not and can be installed in either orientation. Non-polarized components like jacks or potentiometers need to be inserted correctly to work as expected by the firmware (follow the footprint).

unpolarized : resistors, small capacitors, trimmers, potentiometers, encoder, jacks, switches.

polarized : chemical capacitors, diodes, LEDs, ICs, DC barrel jack.

It’s now time to solder.

Confined COVID19

We have finally received boards from China last week… so much delay. There are still some components in transit but we had a small stock, so we could supply a few orders.

 

With the Coronavirus sanitary crisis, all the EU citizens have noticed we are confined.

The benefits of this confinement are … the silence and a break for the planet. We will have time to develop firmware and other projects. We send courage to the parents !

 

The  orders from January and February (outside soldering service) will be shipped next monday. The transit of goods will be particularly slow (less post officers, less trains, no more planes).

You can contact us for any question regarding your order inside your account interface.
