Assembly

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 FeatherWing:

Place the featherwing over the pins so that the short pins poke through the two rows of breakout pads

And Solder!

Be sure to solder all pins for reliable electrical contact.

(For tips on soldering, be sure to check out our Guide to Excellent Soldering).

 

Start by soldering the first row of header

Now flip around and solder the other row completely

You're done with the two header strips.

 

Check your solder joints visually and continue onto the next steps

OK You're done! You can now plug your FeatherWing into your Feather and get your OLED on!
