Step 1. Confirm Kit Contents
You should have:
- 15x Bi-Directional LEDs
- 6x 100 Ohm Resistors (Brown-Black-Brown-Gold)
- 1x Momentary Switch
- 1x Battery Clip
- 1x 3V 2032 Coin Cell
- 1x Christmas Tree PCB with microcontroller soldered and preprogrammed
Step 2. Remove Resistors From Tape
Step 3. Bend Resistor Leads 90 Degrees
Make the bend as close to the body of the resistor as possible.
Step 4. Insert Resistors Into PCB
Step 5. Bend Resistor Leads So They Stay In Place
Step 6. Trim Resistor Leads
Step 7. Solder Resistors
Step 7. Repeat Above Steps With LEDs
These LEDs are bi-directional and very forgiving, but if you'd like to ensure proper orientation of all your LEDs, place the LEDs such that their longer lead goes into the square holes.
Step 8. Repeat Above Steps With Switch
Step 9. Solder Components
Step 10. Solder Battery Clip
Step 11. Insert Battery
When the battery is first inserted, the device will run a test pattern to ensure all LEDs are working properly. When finished, the tree will enter into one of its pre-programmed patterns.
Press the button to interrupt a pattern and turn the device off. When the device is off, you can select a pattern to display by pressing the button repeatedly.
