So, you have a circuit board and a bag of parts you need to assemble. Or you’ve designed a circuit board in Eagle, gotten it fabricated, and you just got it back. Now you see that the parts which looked so big in Eagle are actually REALLY DANG SMALL. What are you going to do? How are you supposed to solder that?!

Working with tiny Surface Mount parts is challenging but can be done in the comfort of your own home. Come to Dorkbot’s Surface Mount Soldering Workshop, presented by Jim Larson, held at OpenTechSpace at TechShop, on Saturday, December 19th, 2009 from 1pm to 5pm.

When you’re done, you’ll have a step-up voltage module to take a AA battery up to 5V.

Cost will be $35, payable at the class.

Please bring:

  • A soldering iron
  • A pair of tweezers
  • A pair of wire cutters
