The Simple-Spectro kit

A Simple-Spectro kit is composed of four little bags:

  • A: Contains the PCB (the electronic board)
  • B: Contains all of the components that you'll need to solder on the PCB
  • C: Contains the different parts of the case (the case itself and all the screws)
  • D: Contains the supplies that you'll need once the construction is finished (like a mini USB cable, a sticker, ...)



Additionally to the kit, you'll need the following materials:

  1. A crosshead screwdriver
  2. A wire cutter
  3. Some solder
  4. A soldering iron
