The first SMD night will be on Friday, March 31st from 7 - 10 pm. Event sign up coming shortly!
The intro project will be the blinky star badge. This is a great little project and will get you ready for an intermediate SMD project coming in April. https://www.tindie.com/products/TomKeddie/smd-star-learn-to-smd-solder-kits/
If you have your own reflow project or are building other SMD projects, feel free to join us on these nights to socialize, build, and enjoy all things SMD.
Event signup coming shortly. Will post here first.
Other projects we can build include the following. Let me know what you’re interested in! Personally I’d like to build a benchtop power supply with the ATX breakout board, but we’ve done that before. I’d like to know what experienced SMDers would like to build as well.
sparkfun sx1509 io expander breakout
sparkfun attiny programmer
sparkfun pocket avr programmer
sparkfun AD8837 signal generator
Makey Makey Board
Ada Fruit USB Isolator
ATX Breakout Board (build your own benchtop power supply)
FYI - the cost of this event will be very low ($10 - $15ish) however if funds are prohibitive for anyone I will donate a few kits to the cause. Send me a PM if that’s you and we’ll get sorted.
