Refer to the layout diagram for clarification of parts placement. All references to up, down, left, and right assume that you are looking at the PCB with the silkscreen TAPR logo oriented up on the board. Unless noted otherwise, all components are mounted on the top of the PC board.
The plastic body the header should rest flush with the top surface of the PC board. Note that the short end of the pins go into the PC board, the long ends stick up.
WARNING! Do not hold these parts with your fingers while soldering. The pins get very hot. Place one or more shunts on the header to insulate your finger from the pins, hold the header in place and tack solder one pin. Check for proper alignment. If alignment is off, you can reheat the pin to adjust. Once alignment is correct, solder the remaining pins and then reflow (reheat) the first pin soldered.
|2x6 (12-pin) DIP header at JMP1. These collectively are the enabling jumpers for the various sensors and interfaces on the board excepting Ser (the serial interface). Note - on early production runs of the board, this part may be supplied as a 2x7 (14-pin) DIP header.|
|1x2 (2-pin) header at Ser (just below JMP1 above). Note - if the previous part was a 2x7 header, this part is not required.|
|1x3 (3-pin) header at P17|
|1x2 (2-pin) header at P18|
|1x2 (2-pin) header at P13|
|1x3 (3-pin) header at P14|
|1x2-pin right-angle header at P8. Note that the pins face the outside edge of the board.|
|1x2-pin right-angle header at P11. Note that the pins face the outside edge of the board.|
|If you have not already done so, remove any shunts used during the soldering operation.|
