I've been trying to solder an SSOP 0.1" onto sparkfun's breakout board. However Somehow I've managed to short a positive to ground. Are there any tips you can give me in identifying it? I'm quite confused because I've sprayed and swapped with PCB cleaner/ IPA. I can't see any solder bridges on the pins. It doesn't appear to be a dead short as my meter telling me there's some resistance there. It also doesn't heat up right away.
I'm going to have to get a new breakout because I've managed to pull one of the pads off therefore am unable to through hole solder the wire.
Is there anything wrong ? I do remember having an issue with the usb not registering then after power cycling it worked. I found a short on my circuit across 5v and gnd on the regulator so removed the ft232rl then it disappeared. I found a short between positive and any gnd on the ft232rl while it wasn't connected anything.
I used IPA and a pcb cleaner to clean off the type R flux I used to solder the ssop
