How-to: Sjaak hand-solders a DFN chip

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

A couple of days ago we discussed some cute little PIC 12F chips. As promised, here is a post about hand-soldering one. Tools we used: Soldering-iron and hot-air rework station. Curved tweezers. Scalpel or hobby knife. Kapton tape Fine solder (0.5mm thick with rosin core). Flux Coffee or strong drink...
