DIODE

386 amp diode

386 amp diode

Place the diode into the PCB by aligning the black line on the diode with the white line on the PCB silk screen.  Diodes are polarized and must be placed into the PCB in the proper orientation.  Carefully turn your project over to solder in place then clip excess leads.

RESISTOR

386 resistor

386 resistor

Place the resistor into the PCB as shown above.  Resistors are not polarized, so you can place the resistor in either direction.  Turn over to solder, then clip excess leads.

IC SOCKET

386 IC Socket

386 IC Socket

Place the IC socket into the PCB by aligning the notch on the socket with the notch on the PCB slikscreen.  Carefully turn board over to solder leads in place.

CERAMIC CAPACITOR

386 amp ceramic capacitor

386 amp ceramic capacitor

Place the ceramic cap into the PCB as shown above.  This cap is not polarized, so you can place it in either direction.  Turn over to solder and clip excess leads.

ELECTROYLYTIC CAPACITORS

386 amp Electrolytic Capacitors

386 amp Electrolytic Capacitors

Electrolytic capacitors are polarized and need to be placed in the proper orientation.   Place the longer lead of the capacitor into the hole in PCB that has the small “+” next to it.  Carefully turn over toe solder and clip.
