Anarduino Assembly Instruction & Illustration

It is assumed that the reader already possesses the fundamental knowledge and skills, and has the required tools for the following basic soldering and assembly process.  Therefore we won't bore you by replicating one of the many web tutorials on this subject.

Identify the Anarduino PCB and three 0.1uf capacitors, C1, C2, and C3.
Then solder these them into their proper places, as shown in graphic.
At left you see the PCB with the three caps just soldered. Next gather the two resistors, R1 and R2.
Install R1 and R2 as follows: R1 is the 10K ohm resister, and R2 is 1K.  The 10K(R1) has first three colors of Brown|Black|Orange, and the 1K(R2) has Brown|Black|Red.  A word of caution is in order, as red and orange are close colors.  After properly identify them, install as shown at left.
The graphic at left shows the resistors also installed.
Next get the IC socket and install as shown. Notice that the capactors and resistors already installed fit perfectly in the open spaces under the socket.  In the example shown at left, I noticed the components do not even touch the socket at all.  As you install the socket, notice there is a rounded notch on one end.  This serves as a visual indicator for correct orientation of the IC.  The curvature is on the left side (to the left of all the components installed thus far).
Identify additional components to be installed.  Install the 2x2 header, the SW1 tactile switch, the X1 Resonator, and the C4 filter cap (47uf) all as shown.  Be sure to orient C4 properly—having the positive terminal(+) to the right, closest to the X1 resonator.
The graphic at left shows the 2x2, SW1, C4, and X1 all installed.
The LED and Jumper(J7) are shown at left with proper location.  Be sure to install the LED correctly.  Note that the Gnd(G) and Positive(+) leads of the LED are labeled (the positive lead(anode) is the longer one, and the negative lead(cathode) is the shorter).  The position on the Anarduino PCB to install the LED it is also labeled.  The Gnd(G) Terminal goes on the right side as shown in the graphic.  If you are installing jumper J7, be sure it is positioned in the location exactly as shown.
This graphic shows the usage of the Power Select Jumper, and it also illustrates how to connect the Dual AA Battery Holder.
The graphic shows the LED installed.  This is a clear LED that lights GREEN. I also have a RED one if you prefer(just indicate this is your message when you purchase).
Here's the finished product!

The quarter is used to illustrate the relative size of the finished product, but it is not included in the kit.
