"Please send me pictures in high resolution"

Please do not ask for high resolution images. You don't need pictures to assemble the kit.

The kit should not be built according to pictures, but according to the circuit diagram.

If you depend too much on pictures, you can get confused by components of different colors or different size, the circuit diagram is clear.

"I cannot assign the components (what is what)"

Please do not ask how you can recognize individual components, proceed systematically.

The bill of materials (BOM) lists all the components contained in the kit, with characteristic properties (footprint, size / housing, manufacturer part number, marking, quantity in the kit). If there is still any doubt, the manufacturer's data sheet will help.

It helps to arrange the components in the order of the parts list, from top to bottom. This also allows you to check that the kit is complete.

You don't need a multimeter or RLC meter to identify the components. There are no parts in the kits in the same size, with the same markings and in the same quantity, so that they could only be identified by measuring.

"I don't know where a component is placed on the board (what is placed where)"

Please do not ask where individual components are soldered to on the board, proceed systematically.

The assembly print on the circuit board tells you where the individual components are soldered to, including the orientation.

If in doubt, a comparison with the circuit diagram will help.

Our PCBs are 2 layers and small, so each net can be easily traced.

"My assembly does not work, what could be the problem?"

Please do not ask such questions without using the available tools.

The test described in the assembly guide provides information about the area in which a hardware problem is to be found.

You may be able to determine interruptions in the power supply or short circuits by measuring the current consumption.

As soon as certain error patterns become visible in the customer feedback, we can include additional information in the assembly guide. So far, soldering errors and wrong orientation of the microcontroller (only Proc version) are known.
