Assembly

These boards come with all surface-mount components pre-soldered. The included header strip can be soldered on for convenient use on a breadboard or with 0.1" connectors. However, for applications subject to extreme accelerations, shock or vibration, locking connectors or direct soldering plus strain relief is advised.

Prepare the header strip:

Cut the strip[ to length if necessary.  It will be easier to solder if you insert it into a breadboard - long pins down.

Add the breakout board:

Place the breakout board over the pins.

And Solder!

Be sure to solder all pins for reliable electrical contact.
