PCB a Week 18: SMD Practice Skull

Posted on Monday, July 22nd, 2013 in PCBs, project logs by DP


Mats continues his challenge of designing one PCB every week.  In week 18  he came up with SMD Practice Skull:

I while ago I chatted with (Re:load) Nick Johnson about making some simple pcbs for learning how to solder smd parts. This is one of the boards that I came up with.
All parts are 1206 except for the transistors that are SOT23 so it should be rather easy to solder this even with a rather coarse tip on the soldering iron. I haven’t tested for how long the battery actually will last, but it will probably flash for a couple of days.
