Hello everybody, first of all I want to say I’m not an electronic guy, I’m doing this myself just because here where I leave there is nobody that can get the job done for me.
The whole project is actually bigger, but I would like to start with this small panel.
It has 6 push buttons, 2 rotary switches, 2 rotary encoders and 2 on-off-on switches. I demultiplex them through 2 165 chips.
After some time of research I was able to get the things working over the experimental board.
Then real problem came when I tried to wire the components once they were mounted over the panel.
At first everything went smooth, but then it was harder and harder at the point I had no place to put the solder
I used UTP because wires are thinner, though I would help, but still ended with this mess.
Obviously I’m bad at soldering, I guess I need to get some practice and be more neat, but what I really want to know is if I’m using the right approach, or maybe there is an easier method to wire this?
I will appreciate any advise you guys can give me
