I wish to solder this type of HDMI connector (Datasheet) to matching pads on a PCB:
So half the pins are protruding out into the clear, and that row is easy to solder.
But just behind that row, as you can see, the 2nd parallel row with the other half of the pins are located inaccessibly underneath the body of the connector.
How can I do this soldering job?
Using a soldering iron, I wouldn't be able to reach there obviously.
Would this require using a hot air gun to apply heat from the underside of the board?
Or if I have to use an oven, can I apply solder paste and place the connector as-is on top of the pads? (The connector doesn't have any special thermal-protective tape.)
