  1. I’ve been wondering how are those wires isolated? Is the isolation burned on soldering? Amazing skills, I couldn’t do that ever, maybe only with some precise robot, and that would take waaaay more time :D

  2. Awsome work!

    I though I’m too good when I hand-soldered my first TSSOP package on the PCB’s pads… this guy definitely doesn’t need SMD prototype PCBs ;)


  3. a stereo microscope (or at a minimum the magnifying glass from a set of “helping hands”) helps as well. . . it’s much easier to solder what you can actually see! i’ve tacked a few pieces of wire wrap onto fine pitch IC’s before for debuggging/rework, but certainly nothing to this extent!

  4. The guy is truly a soldering master. He writes a bit about his technique here, but I’m sure it takes good tools and serious practice to do successfully.

    The insulation on the wire he uses burns off as he solders, so there’s no stripping required.

  5. God, that’s nice work.
    I can, and have done 1mm pitch devices before, and it was stressful.
    I’m not sure I’d attempt anything smaller, not to mention .4mm

    I use magnet wire for repairs and such, nice stuff.
