C100-C104 10uF capacitors P100 RS232 connector for your computer P101 small connector to match P3 above (included in the FC kit) Note that there should also be plugs to match all the connectors on the flight computer and a bag of pins for the plugs - they are very small so be careful you don`t lose them. P1 is a 0. 156 (really 4mm) pitch molex connector available at many local electronic supply places - P2, P3 are 2mm DF3 connectors by Hirose Electric available from DigiKey. A number of the components - in particular the TO220 transistors and the crystal may have bent leads - straighten them out - they are intended to be placed vertically. As usual you should observe care with static sensitive parts - only remove them from their tube just prior to using them and always gently ground yourself and your soldering iron tip prior to working with any parts. This board is designed to work with any of the 40-pin 8051/8031/8052/8032 variants of microprocessors - I`ve chosen the 80C32 mostly because it`s available and because it runs at a much lower power than the plain 8051/8031s that are more commonly...
