Step 7: The Sensor - Support Board

Picture of The Sensor - Support Board

Sensor Support Board

This is a rectangular board that provides mechanical support and electrical connections to the sensor ring board. It includes a 16 pin right angled PCB header for connection of the ribbon cable to the Chatterbox.

Cut the board to a length of 97mm

Cut the strips at the eight locations shown in the diagram. These electrically separate the two rows of eight pins of the right angled header. I used a scalpel to carefully cut the copper strips as these were between adjacent holes in the board.

Fix the header in position with a small amount of Superglue and solder the pins.

Populate the board with all jumper wires.
