Say I have an assembled PCB with a QFP package on it. This device gets damaged and I need to replace it. Getting the device off is straightforward, but now all the pads have solder blobs on them. Is ...
I was soldering some components on a PCB and suddenly i realized that i soldered a wrong resistor (i should solder a 10k ohm and I did solder a 1k ohm). I tried to remove it, with iron solder (it ...
I need to add a resistor into a data line on my project. The data line is a trace and carries low speed data. A through-hole resistor will be fine. The pins for both ends of the trace are exposed, but ...
I'd like to remove all the ICs from the below PCB, hopefully preserving them for future use: This was a failed (ish) reflow attempt using paste and a hot plate. I have a hot plate, a hot air ...
We're looking for a decent hot air SMD rework station to help us fix up our prototypes. In the past, I've used one of the low-end Aoyue models, and found it lacking (the interface had problems, and ...
