PostSubject: PIC micro game   Thu Jun 05, 2008 1:36 pm

As seeing the idea of an AVR LED game on youtube, I decided to make a clone of it. Instead, I'm using a PIC micro and a 5x7 LED matrix.




All I currently have programmed is a sequence of lines going back and forth, I'-m working on a simple game right now.
My next prototype will be soon.

Very cool! I have been tempted to make a LED game myself but never started. How did you manage to solder the socket on the copper side of the PCB? When I first started making my own PCBs I accidentally did that with a two 7 segment LEDs and I had a very hard time getting the iron to the pins. Smile

Good job. You should share your code once you are done!

PostSubject: Surface socket soldering.   Sun Jun 15, 2008 6:04 pm

The way to solder IC's and other devices on the copper side is not that hard at all. All you have to do is bend the leads. Look at pictures below to get a better understanding.

Get component you need, in this case the socket.

Bend leads so they're flat.

Place socket on coper side of board, place where necessary and solder.


I would start out with a fresh tip, so solder doesn't connect two leads.

Oh! You made it like a surface mount piece. On my board that I messed up it was double sided so I had to stick the pins through. Thanks for the tip!
