PCSprint Board Items

Post by chuckphd53 »

Here are some items for the PCSprint board...
I took the original design and pushed it into SMT parts.
Also note the BLACK CAP 10uF under the board ( picture 4) , this is usually sticking up in the air
and I had to push it down to make way for the board, by using a solder iron and from the bottom of the Mother board
heat the leads and pull it up a little so you have extra legs extended to allow it to bend over correctly...
If you decide to take the capacitor off the board be sure you observe it's placement and do not get it turned around.
they like to explode with a very exciting 'bang'.... :)

Note the SOCKET on the mother board for the PCSPRINT board, these used are just SIPs, I Prefer these as they do not 'block' the board under that of a typical socket, just incase you need to look at the board traces, also this lets you see both sides of your solder joints on each
pin to ensure you did a good job ! :lol:

Note the original AD in PC Magazine...
