10. Last few steps: wire, batt, card, thumbs up
In this section is the last odd steps. This will include soldering some jumper wires, and inserting the coincell battery and micro sd cards. Finally, everything will be complete! That’s worth a thumbs up. In this section you will need the additional wire, the CR2032 coincell battery, and the micro sd card.
Flip the board over and insert the CR2032 coincell battery into the coincell holder.
Here is the proper orientation of the battery.
Flip the board over and insert the Micro SD card into the Micro SD card slot on the Teensy 3.6.
Here is what the Micro SD card looks like.
Obtain the extra red wire in the kit.
Cut the pieces of wire to lengths that will go from Z1 to Z1, Z2 to Z2, and Z3 to Z3. Strip and tin the tips of the wires.
Solder the wire to the Z1 pad near the right hand side edge of the board.
Solder the other end of the wire to the Z1 pad near the bottom edge of the board.
Repeat the process for the additional wires, Z2 to Z2 and Z3 to Z3.
Here is what the wires look like when soldered to the pads.
Here is another view so the pads are visible in this photograph.
Thumbs up! You’re done assembling the Bowie Brain Kit!
