I recently purchased the arduino motor shield v3. As I could not find any assembly instructions here, I googled a bit and found this instruction on youtube.
(1st link; see next post for the links - this is my first post in this forum)
I found the documentation of David Cuartielles too, (2nd link) where I downloaded the layout (and schematics) which I think is the same as another one I found (3rd link; please correct me, if not).
In the video however the guy puts the RED leds in the other direction. As you can see in the picture the negative side of the left led is on the left. The negative side of the right led is on the right. In the video he puts the negative side of the left led to the right, and the negative side of the right led to the left.
I soldered all parts accept the ICs as I want to buy some sockets and put the ICs in there.
Is there any chance to test if I soldered the leds correctly? I made the version of the picture, not the one of the video.
If I put the shield on the arduino and turn it on, the power led lights. If I press the two buttons, the red leds light.
Does that mean, I soldered them correctly?
Thanks in advande.
