How to assemble the Temp:bit

Tuesday, 14 August 2018

First of all you need to check the content of your kit which is easy as it only contains the PCB and a tmp36 sensor.

You will also require the following parts:

  • Soldering Iron
  • Solder
  • Flush cutters or snips

Step 1.

Taking the tmp36 as shown  above you need to bend the two outer pins as shown below.

Step 2.

Place the tmp36 through the holes as shown bellow.

Now taking the heated soldering solder all 3 pins to the board as shown below.

 

Step 3.

Taking your cutters snip the legs away taking care as the legs can fly off with some force. Placing a finger on the end of the leg when cutting can reduce the risk of flying legs!

You are now done. You can click here to view our tutorial on how to use the tmp:36 with a micro:bit. Please note this was before we released the board and shows just the sensor.
