This post shows you how to assemble the Amarino lamp. The kit package includes the following components. Click on the links of the components the components below to see how the components have been assembled on the circuit board.
You will need basic soldering knowledge to assemble the kit. The assembly process is very straight forward, you can easily guess which components to solder where on the PCB. The silkscreen labels are very clear and directs you to assemble the board properly.
- 1 x Bare PCB with silkscreen indicators. (click on the links to see the assembly images)
