I'm in the process of doing the soldering for the $50 robot and when I attached the DIP socket I didn't notice the half-circle indent on the end. I ended up putting it on backwards, so that the half circle is on the edge of the board rather than in the middle like the pictures in the tutorial. My question is, is the DIP socket symmetric, so I can correct this mistake by just putting the microcontroller on the correct way? Or do the little half-circles need to line up? I've already completed a lot of the soldering so I'd rather not have to redo everything.
I checked the data sheet and everything on there seemed to suggest it is symmetric
Please forgive my extreme noobishness, im just starting to get my feet wet in robotics
thanks a lot
