Hi all, I am new to SMT. In past I've made many PCB boards with my small hands at home, but I've used regular technology drilling the holes for the components. I am trying to use SMT for my projects. SOP packages I was able to solder using a regular soldering iron. However it is not so easy with SSOPs. I've heard that I have to use soldering paste and oven. My question: is there any way I can use SMT (manually) and what is the process and things I need for that? Thanks in advance, Boris.
I think you are a genuis. The idea in your post is quite helpful and lights me. I have been puzzled for a long time in my new project.
Quite useful and impressive info. I have learned a lot from your article and I will keep on reading your sharing.
Excellent work. I am impressed.
