5050 SMD LED Clock + ESP controller
First SMT soldering ever, the board was a mess going in, but it came out with flying colors. This was a test of the 1.1mm solder pads for the 5050 leds.
LED pad size testing boards have arrived from OSHPark, time to try some reflow soldering
Testing if I can put the 5050 LEDs quite close together by using a reduced solder pad size.
Finally got my first board designed and uploaded to OSH Park
Finally got mmccoo's KiCad plugins working properly (partially need a particular environment, partially mistakes on my part).
I need to send out some small prototype boards, I need to see if I can make smaller footprints for the LEDs, the default solder pads are huge, and I wonder if I can get away with smaller ones.
Received the 2000 TX1818A LEDs today, crossed fingers that they will be able to talk a standard protocol.
