Ever wonder what it takes to prototype surface mount boards?
Announcing a lab64 open house and activity:
BUILD YOUR OWN Arduino Metro Mini* or Software Defined AM/FM Radio
lab64 is the Stanford makerspace focused on building electronic and computational SYSTEMS.
Located in the basement of the David Packard Electrical Engineering Building, lab64 is home to a variety of projects, groups and student clubs including the Stanford Robotics Club. The lab focuses on all types and sizes of projects with a significant system component including computer enabled art, small/short range RADAR, soft robotic systems, drawbots, CubeSats (mini-satellites), embedded systems (including FPGA implementations), solar power systems for developing areas, etc.
We will be leading folks through the process of surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly to create their very own working AM/FM radio or Arduino Metro Mini (both will be available). Expect to spend between 30 to 45 minutes per board.
- Each session will include a brief tutorial of SMT assembly
- All supplies provided free of charge!
- Friendly help available if you need support!
- No prior experience required!
- Choose one or make both!
- Participants will receive a FREE lab64 tee shirt! †

The Arduino Metro Mini (a clone of the Adafruit product) looks like this:
Or you can build the surface mount version of the software defined radio (SDR), which will look like this:
*Forked from the open source Adafruit Metro Mini project. Please support Adafruit; they do a great job!
