SMD November is all about building our own Bus Pirate v3. The bus pirate v3 is a like a leatherman for electronics protocols. “Talk to 1-wire, I2C, UART (async serial), SPI, JTAG, MIDI, LCDs, PC keyboards, and a ton of generic serial devices from a terminal.” In SMD October workshop we showed you can program AVR processors […]

This workshop uses a readily available prototype board to construct a bare bones Arduino Leonardo compatible microcontroller using off the shelf components. The soldering will be more complex than the September workshop. The microcontroller has 32 pins but the pin spacing is the same as the 555 timer used in the I (heart) SMT board. […]
Last night’s workshop was a great success, look for more to come. Here is the assembly video showing how to hand solder 0805 SMD components and the 8 pin SOIC component.
SMT is the way of the future and the future is at VHS. As a follow on to our SMT talk in August, this September we’re hosting a number of SMT build nights. Surface mount soldering is easier than through hole soldering, come along and see how easy it is. Join us on September 12th […]
Wednesday. Wednesday! WEDNESDAY! Is SMT night at VHS! Beeeee theeeeerrre! VHS has just received a large donation of SMT components, with some amazing parts in the mix. In order for our community to take advantage of these parts though, we have to break down the perceived barriers to entry that many people have for working […]
