This is a retired product, but fear not as there is a newer, better version available: KIT-10935

Replacement: KIT-09882. The new version of this kit adds extras of the small components to help you out if you misplace a super tiny resistor. It also has small corrections to the manual and better instructions.
Description: This is a kit of loose components that go along with the SMD Soldering Lecture. This is considered an intermediate kit for people who have soldered before and wish to learn how to solder surface mount components. This kit does not include a programmer or a battery. You will need an external programmer to program the firmware onto the ATmega328. All parts are listed below.
This PCB is version '0E' or zero-error. The PCB has zero errors designed into it. We offer versions with errors (2E for example) for those who enjoy troubleshooting and correcting PCB errors.
Please note that this is now shipping with the 328. This IC is pin compatable, and interchangable with the 168. You will need to modify the make file to reflect this change.
Note: This is an older version of the Simon SMD kit, it's since been replaced by a newer version. We found a handful of these in stock, however, so we'll be selling them for a limited time at a reduced price.
Here is some good information for SMD soldering:
