 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

im doing something like this http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/101 its kinda messy and you have to be quick with the soldering iron not to heat the parts too , i have heated so parts pretty hard and they are still working but don't rely  on that some parts may be more sensitive to heat than others , but the end result its ok

here is a low quality shot of my usbasp programmer witch still needs some parts

and same technique its used for the usb connector too

 @CrossRoads

 Could you tell me the capacitor locations please? ADDED...Sorry, I meant values at said locations.
Such as:
C1 = 0.1uF
C2 = .22uf
C3 =.22uf     <added values after CrossRoads response
C4 = 0.1uF
C5 = 0.1uF
C9 = 0.1uF
R1=10k
ADDED: Also, I did not purchase a reset switch, any suggestions?

  The silkscreen gives the C1-C9 not the values of the components.

 I am building five boards and then five more later so, I don't want to mess up.

cyclegadget,
The caps needed are 0.1uF/100nF at C1, 4, 5, 9. Didn't realize I left that off the schematic.
22 pF and 10K for the other 2 & the pullup.

Any kind of normally open, momentary contact switch will do.

 Thanks CrossRoads.  I think I have it sorted out now. I found a switch and ordered more components. I currently only have enough 0.1uF for two boards. I will hopefully have them soldered by tomorrow and tested by the weekend.

 Another first for me, I soldered my first size 805 SMTs resistor and 2 caps!!!  smiley-cool smiley-cool They were tricky but, I am starting to get it!

Hi guys,

the board is up and running nicely. USB is happy, clocks are ticking away.

All lines are good, voltage levels look very nice with little ripple and noise when powered from the USB. IO lines are all good and analog lines are nice and stable.

There is however a BUG on the ISP cut away connector, I have misplaced the MOSI and MISO pins. I have reworked the board that I have assembled, programmed the boot loader and away it goes.

Anyway, since a few of you are waiting for these boards I think it is only fair to let you know.

Since the connector is only necessary to get the boot loader on the AVR, there are several ways to get it in there:
  • Cut away the traces for the MOSI and MISO lines and wire them as in the attached image
  • Remove the ISP header connector and use an external connector to the breakout pins on the board (D11, D12, D13, RST, +5V, GND)

If you are interested in this release, please drop me a message and I will make the arrangements to post them over. I will also be ordering a new batch shortly with this corrected.

Sorry for the inconvenience chaps.

got my first mini-uino put together. Not as hard as I thought it would be, but I didn't realize how shaky my hands were.... I used the put some solder on all the pads, then tack each one down method. It wasn't too bad. Now I just need to figure out what I want to make with it. Thanks for the design crossroads

Cool! I am clearing off my desk so I can set up LED lamps I bought at target yesterday and will try one myself.
Then same as  you - what to do with it?  Need some clever little project to put it in.
I have a 35gm syringe of solder, plunger, and 0.019" tips, will see how cleanly I can get paste applied.
