Learn how to work with surface mount technologies. This workshop is suitable for newcomers to SMT as well as more experienced hobbyists who are looking for a reliable method for building projects using SMT. We will cover the basics of surface mount parts and the tools necessary to work efficiently with them, including a temperature controlled hot plate reflow system which you can build. And we will offer a hands on build session where you will go through all the steps in populating a PCB with parts and doing the reflow soldering process to end up with a working project.
No tools or prior experience is necessary although, if possible, you can bring a soldering iron, some type of magnifier (reading glasses, visor, etc) and a good pair of fine point tweezers. We will have some tools available to use during the workshop.
