DorkbotPDX Workshop -- Surface Mount Soldering

417 SE 11th Ave
Portland, OR 97214, US (map)



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.

WHERE: ADX, 417 SE 11th Avenue, Portland, OR
