The wiring diagram below provides a visual reference for connecting the components. It is not true to scale, it is just meant to be used as reference. This diagrams was created using the Fritzing software package.
Take a moment to review the components in the circuit diagram. This illustration is meant for referencing wired connections - the length of wire, position and size of components are not exact.
Wires are measured and cut to have enough slack to reach each component.
Silicone ribbon wire is used to make them easier to coil and manage each wire inside the tight spacing. The wire lengths used are listed below:
LED strip for Ears: 310mm (remove 1.75mm of sheath)
Gemma to LED Strip connector: 90mm
Strip to Strip Connection: 160mm
JST Extension: 240mm
Add Slide Switch about 60mm from the female connector
