Soldering of the GertBoard kit took an evening, taking my time and examining all parts and solder joints carefully. I found the SMT parts were quite easy to solder -- my only worry was that I would lose some of them!
|Assembled GertBoard (less ICs)|
I've now completed the assembly and just have to insert the ICs before being ready to give it the initial "smoke test". Unfortunately it will have to wait a week until I am back from the Qt Developer Days conference in Germany where, among other things, I will be giving a presentation on Qt and the Raspberry Pi.
