This guide is the assembly instructions for the PiDuino Kit. The PiDuino enables the Pi to have real-time and analog capabilities.
First check all items are correct in the kit.
- 1k resistor
- 10 resistor
- 2 x 100nF capacitor
- 2 x 22pF capacitor
- 10uF capacitor
- 3.3v voltage regulator
- red LED
- 8MHz crystal
- Push button
- 28 pin ic socket
- 4 way header
- 2 x ten way header
- 3 x two way header
- 26way header
- 28way IC socket
- 3 x jumper
If you are new to soldering then checkout this tutorial from Sparkfun.
Solder 3 x two way header.
== Solder the two 22pF capacitor on C1 and C2. The capacitor has the number 22 printed on it.
== Solder the two 100nF capacitor on C3 and C4. The capacitor has the number 104 printed on it.
Solder the 10uF capacitor on C6. Check the polarity is correct.
== Solder the 1k resistor on R2. Colour code Brown – Black – Red.
== Solder the 10k resistor on R1. Colour code Brown – Black – Orange.
== Solder the 8MHz crystal on Y1.
== Solder the 3.3v regulator on IC2.
== Solder the Push button on S1.
== Solder the red LED on LED1. Ensure the short lead is connected to the Cathode (k) on the PCB.
== Solder the 4 way header on JP6. Please note the Rev B PCB does not have a gap between JP6 and JP5, it will be a tight fit. Just push them together.
== Solder the 2 x ten way header on JP2 and JP5.
== Solder the 28 way IC socket on IC1.
Solder the 26way connector on CON4. Note the connector is mounted underneath and solder on top.
== Insert jumper on JP1, JP3 and JP4.
== Insert the Atmega328 IC on IC1.
Insert the nylon post and plug into the Raspberry Pi.
Install the Arduino IDE software and test from this guide.
