Gherkin assembly notesTest fitting all the parts together before soldering anything. You may need to trim/grind some parts to make them fit.
Choose appropriate value resistors for the LEDs you are using.
100Kohm and 100ohm resistors for MOSFET.
Diodes are polarized, align the black stripe with the stripe on the board.
This socket was a 28 pin socket I trimmed down to 24 pins. Also the cross supports were cut off since the plastic PCB pins from the switch would press against them.
Here's a nice video on soldering SOIC parts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fq8A95AQFYU
There is a dot instead of a line on the Gherkin PCB.
You can see what it looks like when soldering the diodes pins in this post. http://www.40percent.club/p/socketing-pro-micro.html
