Soldering JAW

The strategy for completing the kit quickly is to solder the shortest components first, this makes the components flush with the board when you flip it over to solder.


5k resistors maybe substituted with 4.7k resistors and 2k resistors maybe substituted with 2.2k resistors. R4 which has not value labeled on the PCB is 5k or 4.7k.
Board with resistors

Inductor and Diode

The diode should be mounted so that the stripe end points downward. The inductor looks like a fat green resistor.
Inductor added

LM317, Atmega88, Max232

ICs added

Screw Terminal and 16 Pin IDC Connector

The IDC connector is labeled as “JP1” on the JAW PCB board, it is just beneath the Serial Port. On the IDC connector there is a small triangle symbol, this symbol indicates pin 1.
Connectors added

Capacitors and Serial Port

The long lead of the capacitor is the positive, and the short lead is negative, the negative lead is also marked as “-“ on the capacitor itself. The positive lead goes into the hole marked “+”, left hole. The negative lead goes into the right hole.
Caps and port added


LM7805 added


Using the supplied screw, mount the Heatsink to the LM317t, if you have heatsink compound it would be a good idea to use some. Solder the LM317 to the PCB.

Soldering the Display

This is easy enough, so I will not go into detail. R12 is 2k or 2.2k ohms. Just remember that he triangle symbol on the IDC connector indicates pin 1.
