Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very pleased with circuit, when complete, doesn't really work at all as expected. Very dissappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from All round terrible buy! I bought this a few days ago instead of the vellman kits that they also offer to see what the quality of these kits were like. I was pleased to see the chips were in anti-static foam but after trying to solder things on to this board it was very disappointing. the soldering pads came away very easy from the board even at a very low heat. The instructions, well if you can call them instructions its really just a schematic. Although there is a guide of all the different capacitors and all but if I was a beginner I don't think that I would have been able to complete this kit. After finally finishing this kit I was very disappointed to find out it didn't even read your pulse. The buzzer did stop its annoying "bizzzzzzzzzzz" if you pointed the IR led at the receiver and then blocked it and then pointed it at it again etc. There are also two unused terminals labeled "A" and "D" what are these for? Your guess is as good as mine, I would say that it's something to do with expansion but I have no Idea. So the Pros: Soldering tips and component guide is useful for beginners Cons:PCB very bad quality with rough sides and bad solder pads. Instructions for this specific board non-existant Kit useless as it doesn't tell your pulse Would be very hard to tell where to put some components without a multimeter due to some bad labels In conclusion I wouldn't recommend buying this kit for beginners or professionals alike.

What are terminals A and D for . Kit has a component layout - but no schematic diagram.

Asked by: RFWlon
These are for expansion, but that is not explained in the project as it is not the items intended purpose.
