I have built projects before with SMD components on them, but this is the first time that I have included SMD components on my own projects. Yeah i know, its nothing extraordinary, its a 5V regulator, but we all gotta start somewhere. Which got me to thinking, perhaps I should do more with larger SMD components and be able to fit more on a board. We will see LOL 🙂
Oh and for anyone who is interested, this is a respin of my band pass filter board using these variable inductors i got. Anyway, all i have done at the moment is build one filter for testing. Testing which still needs to be done, but I will get to that soon enough and post up some results.
