Above is the diagram for the PU-18.

All of the points are fairly easy to solder to, with the only tricky point being pin one. Just don’t apply too much pressure or you might knock the capacitor off of the board.

Installation tips

Here are some tips I have for you when you are soldering your chip into the PU-18.

  • Placing the chip in between the circles for pins 3, 5, and 6 seems to be the ideal location.
  • Flatten the legs of the chip so it can more easily fit underneath the board.
