[SOLVED] Skywriter XL/Breakout Need for soldering?


#1

Hi, this is probably a really daft question, but I’m about to order a skywriter breakout/xl and was just wondering if it is easy to just plug the right jumper cables into the pi and into the board, or if the connections to the board absolutely need to be soldered.
I’m really hoping there is some way of just using female to female jumper wires to connect it up :) !

Thanks in advance

No, just plugging In jumper wires will not provide reliable contacts, soledring is a must.

Ok, so now I add a soldering iron and some solder to my order!

Thanks again, such quick reliable support has convinced me this is the product & company for me :)
