This guide will take you through the assembly of the entire miniscope system.
Head Mounted Scope Assembly
A brief outline of steps to assemble the scope can get found here: File:AssemblingScope.pdf.
Filter Set Installation
Excitation PCB Installation
CMOS Imaging Sensor PCB Installation
Data Acquisition System Assembly
We generally have all surface mount (SMD) components assembled on the DAQ PCB by a third party PCB assembly house leaving only the through-hole components to be assembled in lab. It is possible to have the assembly house place both SMD and through-hole components but it is more expensive and through-hole components are relatively easy to solder. A good through-hole soldering tutorial can be found here.
