We took our cameras on the road and visited Sjaak’s workshop this week. He showed us how he solders QFN chips with a bit of hot air and normal drag-soldering. We also surprised him with a challenge to solder a tiny BGA chip, see how it turns out.
Here’s some links mentioned in the video:
- Arduino weather radio shield
- Infrared Thermopile sensor TMP006
- TMP006 infrared temperature sensor test
- Example QFN footprint with via in the middle (from here)
We aim to post some sort of workshop video every Tuesday and Thursday. Later this week we’ll be back in our lab with a look at Bus Pirate firmware release v6, and we’ll solder a few new prototypes too.
