Pins 22-52 not soldered
« on: December 06, 2013, 06:51:27 pm »
received my digix in the mail today. First thing I noticed is the even numbered pins from 22 to 52 are not soldered! is this an error at manufacturing? Its not a problem for me, just wanted to give the heads up.

Board looks awesome though! cant wait to play with it!!!!!

I see the row 22-52 and mine all have solder - every pin I see on the bottom has a nice shiny mound.  Maybe you already got attention - but it sounds like you got shorted some lead.

Well its a easy fix. I just wanted to make sure it wasnt a common problem at the factory!

Thanks for this post! Though unrelated, it got me thinking about why the blink example wasn't working and I realized pin 13 was bridged by a bit of extra soldier to a neighboring pin.
