DigiPot assembled

Matseng continues his challenge of designing one PCB a week. His week 2 board, the DigiPot, has arrived and he assembled it. He did run into problems soldering the connectors which he unfortunately clustered under the encoder.

Soldering them was very hard and the leads on both the pin headers as well as the encoder must be cut flush to the pcb before soldering, and it was a very tight fit for the tip of the iron to reach down to the pcb. This PCB needs revising before anyone would like to solder more than one or two of them.
