Solder bridges checking

in BP v4, Bus Pirate by Ian | 0 comments

LongHairedHacker shared an SMD soldering experience while building the Bus Pirate v4:

A good way of checking for solder bridges is having a bright lamp shining through the pcb. The light will shine through the gaps between the pins, while any solder between them will totally block it.
