‘Programming the CRICKIT for Selective Soldering’ Part 3 | @mfgday #MFGDay18

What better example to show & demonstrate for Manufacturing Day than how we manufacture the CRICKIT?! Specifically the selective soldering process, which our own Noah Barrow wrote some fantastic blogs for earlier this year. Here’s a snippet from part 3:

So far we’ve discussed our thinking behind the CRICKIT’s panelization as well as some guiding principles that underpin our programming philosophy. Now let’s get to the actual CRICKIT program itself!

Although you may go about it in a number of different ways we tend to lay down our flux paths FIRST. We like to sketch the flux paths first because the board will always be fluxed prior to soldering.

We begin by merely sketching over the necessary leads we know we will be soldering. Remember, it’s too early to begin optimizing. We can start tweaking once we’ve seen how the program runs.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
