Minimalist Shield Assembly Instructions

This is for the current version of the "minimalist shield," which is v1.3, 2014. There were no previous instructions for this item but it assembles in the same general manner.

Before starting, make sure you have all the parts available from the BOM. There are only five plus the printed circuit board and though two are alike, they are interchangeable.

Step 1:

Gather all the elements of the BOM.

Step 2:

Solder the .1uf capacitor; it has no polarity, so can be put in either way.

Step 3:

Solder the nRF header; here we show the header being held on with a strip of masking tape to hold it in place while its soldered.

Step 4:

nRF header in place.

Step 5:

Solder the 10uf capacitor; it has polarity and the long lead should be put into the hole marked with the plus sign (+). Then, tape one of the six-pin headers to the board.

Step 6:

The header soldered.

Step 7:

Place and soldered the other six-pin header.
