Soldering the 8bit PIC SchmartBOARD

Here is a video showing how to solder a PIC16F88 and a few discrete components on a 8bit PIC SchmartBoard.

The 8bit PIC SchmartBoard is a development board that supports many of Microchip’s 8bit microcontrollers in SOIC packages. It has a on-board crystal, 5v voltage regulator and 28 breakout pins for the PIC.  It also sports a reset button, ICSP programing header, and a power LED.

  1. SchmartBOARD are easy to solder and it makes it almost imposible to get a solder bridge. I use them to solder ICs in QFN package that would be imposible for me otherwise.
