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 on the right-hand side of the board. Unless noted otherwise, all components are mounted on the top of the PC board.
All capacitors should be mounted as nearly flush to the board surface as practical without stressing the leads.
Save clipped leads for installing the ferrite beads and other jumpers in later steps.
|Install a 0.001 uF (102) at C2|
|Solder and clip two leads. Don't forget to save the clipped leads.|
Electrolytic and Tantalum capacitors are polarized. The positive lead goes in the hole on the board marked with a "+". NOTE: The orientation of the positive + leads are not all the same. Be careful! The negative or the positive lead may be marked.
|Install a 1 uF (105) tantalum capacitor at C1.|
|Double-check the polarity and then solder/clip two leads. Did you save the clipped leads?|
