To solder the BlinkStick you will need:
Solder the resistors. There are 3 types of resistors:
Bend resistor pins so that they fit into their locations.
Solder the resistors and cut the excess wire near the solder joint.
Use the same technique when soldering the rest of the components.
Solder zener diodes D1 and D2. Make sure the polarity is correct! The black stripe on the diode is represented by a white stripe on the component's symbol.
Solder the electrolytic capacitor C1. Capacitors have polarity and the longer pin is positive. The negative pin is displayed on the board with a minus sign next to it. It should be the one closer to the edge of the board.
Solder the tantalum capacitor C2. It also has polarity as displayed in the picture with longer pin being positive and shorter - negative.
Solder USB plug JP1. The board and the plug should be nice and straight.
Solder the IC1 socket. The ATTiny85 chip will be placed into the socket at a later step. The socket has a cut-out on one edge. It should be aligned as displayed in the second image.
Solder the Piranha LED. The LED has a cut corner and the correct alignment is displayed on the board.
Plug in the ATTiny85 IC into the socket. Make sure that you plug the chip correctly! The dot on the chip should match the second image.
