This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Competent - You will encounter surface mount components and basic SMD soldering techniques are required.

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.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

yeah, i can't find it either
Where's this part in SFE Library?
SparkFun-Electromechanical > SWITCH-MOMENTARY-2 > TACTILE-SWITCH-1101NE
i couldn't find this part in the sfe eagle library... what's its name there?
In case anyone is interested, I found out who makes these, but I cant find them at Mouser or Digikey. http://www.ilswitch.com/product_01.php?page=product_01_list
Is this part in the SFE Eagle 6.1 library? Did a search on switch, momentary, tactile and I don't see it. All the Tac switches listed are 4-pole.
I don't know if it's because I melted these reflowing them or what, but I had trouble getting these things to properly switch every time. I have to press them just right for it to register.
Do these come in a different color? I've seen ones that are orange buttons with a black case.
Anyone know where I can get a few thousand of these buttons? I love SFE for prototyping but ordering for small production runs doesn't seem very practical.
Digikey has many similar, for example: CKN10388CT-ND
I cannot for the life of me find this part in the library. I have the newest one. Sparkfun, please help us out...
Yeah, it's kinda-sorta hidden. It's in the SWITCH-MOMENTARY-2 device, and the variant is -SMD-1101NE. The package name is TACTILE-SWITCH-1101NE.
