heART - Surface Mount Soldering Kit

Be still my beating heart! With the heART Surface Mount Soldering Kit you will be able to learn the basics of SMD soldering by being able to assemble a beating heart pendant! Each heART kit takes about 20-40min to assemble depending on your soldering skill level with basic soldering materials (not included). This little kit provides a great learning tool to help you practice and improve your overall soldering skills without proving to be an impossible challenge!

Every heART pendant kit includes one heart-shaped PCB, a CR2032 SMD battery holder, SMD LEDs, capacitors, switch, and an ATtiny85 (the heart of the heART). All you need to supply (besides a soldering iron and solder) is a CR2032 coin cell battery since it is not included to make shipping easier and some way to hang the completed pendant from your neck when you assemble it. The battery you provide should last over a week if left on continuously and much longer if switched off when not in use.

Note: Since this product is a kit, assembly and a healthy knowledge of soldering will be required. The heART pendant kit does not come pre-assembled.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

Customer Comments

  • This is a really neat product but is terribly overpriced. China would sell this for $2.95. Your price should be $4.95, $9.95 at the most. Just saying.

  • Where are the schematics and EAGLE files for this? What about the code on the ATtiny85?
