Quick question

by nemesis_c on Wed Jan 20, 2016 7:24 pm

Why do some componets not come soldered onto their boards?

For example the PowerBoost 1000 Basic didn't have the USB port attached etc. What is the reason for doing this?

It's just a bit difficult to assemble if say a customer didn't have a soldering iron , solder etc...

We try to keep things flexible. Some customers want to build these into projects where they will be hard-wired. Many if these projects are space-constrained and connectors take up valuable space.
