Whew!l Last 30 ceramic caps on the board. These last, as provided in my kit, were 0.1 uF disc caps, in the same style as the others supplied, rather than the axial style most of the beta testers used, I guess. The only thing is, these caps were not made with the little "dog leg" double 90 degree bend to fit the hole spacing. As a result, I had to try to carefully center each one as low as I could make it on the board before soldering in place. Unfortunately, a couple of them ended a bit lopsided from what I intended. Won't affect functionality of course but it does annoy me a bit. Ah, well. I understand many artists work an intentional flaw into their artwork as a "calling card" of sorts - I'm gonna go with that explanation if someone ever mentions it in years to come.
Hmm.. that's odd I was pretty sure the ones in the BOM (
399-9870-1-ND) had the correct lead spacing of 0.2" (5.08mm), and ideally there should have been 6 axial ones (1109PHCT-ND) for under the Pokey's where a low profile is needed. So you might need to bend those over if there is a clearance problem. But hey that's what this builder's thread is all about... solving any issues that come up.
EDIT: Opps the lead spacing is actually 0.1" on those, it's the package size that's 0.2" (I'll have to go find the correct part and update the BOM -- Arggg )
Here is the correct part: 399-4329-ND and I just updated the BOM on my website (sorry about that ).
Nice to see more stuff getting soldered on your board .
