I just got my first Raspberry Pi Pico and I don't have any experience in electrical enginering.
The book I'm following indicates that I first have to solder the and the first step is to solder the header pins. I don't have any experience in electrical enginering.
Now after I finished soldering I want to test if the soldering went well. As I want to now that this step went well before moving on to actually building something.
I have a multimeter at my exposal.
I can test for shortcircuits between neighbouring header pins, by doing a resistance test with the multimeter.
Now I think one can also do a continuity test, to see if the soldering connections are proper. My question: how can I perform a continuity test for all the pins? Can I just connect my multimeter with a resistance measurement to the ground pin and then one by one to the other pins? (Or is this nonsense and potentially even damaging the Raspberry Pi?) (And is there a difference between General Purpose IO pins and the more exotic pins?)
The pinout can be found here: https://www.google.nl/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://datasheets.raspberrypi.com/pico/Pico-R3-A4-Pinout.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjbxcbH16H_AhXtMewKHc66AWoQFnoECA0QAQ&usg=AOvVaw31SQWFWkcgN8X2VgWD_CRm
I see here (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iIQ14vTxVK0) that a conitunity test is also simply a resistance test, but in this case the resistance should be low.
