Ever wondered how the pro’s physically manage to make a module? Well ok, you can get a fancy pick and place machine or send off for someone to assemble your module, but you can do it by hand. It is not as hard as expected.
We met up last night to have a look at a .NET Gadgeteer module, picking a nice easy module to look at to begin with for: http://www.meetup.com/GadgeteerSouthCoast/. Despite being called the GHI PIR Sensor it is found in the toolbox as a “Motion Sensor”
Here is the view from the top of the module:
There is a case, where you can get a blue screen of death (BSOD) where your computer just dies/reboots, usually during a NetMF or .NET Gadgeteer deploy and especially if you hit the reset button (on the device) or attempt to pull out the USB cable.
