In trying to design a beginning surface mount kit, I began to wonder just how small a surface mount part you could hand solder. This project, as titled on Hackaday.io, "An Unfortunate SMD Project", is ultimately designed to make you fail.
In case you didn't read the above description, let me reiterate: I can almost guarantee you will fail, even though I provide extra components so you can take more than one try.
Should you succeed, and that, as stated above, is unlikely, you are eligible for inclusion for the exclusive 0201 Club and a digital copy of a Certificate of Membership.
The Misery Edition starts with 0805 packages and a QFN20 chip which is much harder to hand solder. Since I haven't found a 01005 LED yet to match the 01005 resistor, you get another 0201 LED, but this one is diffuse so you can't tell the orientation visually. On the plus side, it has a switch to save battery power, and will indicate if a LED is installed backwards.
Regular Version Includes:
Misery Edition Includes:
I would not recommend this kit to anyone, and am just selling it to punish the Hack-a-day folks who love such frustration.
If you are interested in doing these for a large group or event, I'm willing to help you customize the silk screen or programming.
