Isn’t it gorgeous?
Yeah – a panel of 20 UART Plugs, using my little reflow grill setup. Perfect, almost no adjustments needed – just two spots which didn’t get hot enough for a shiny solder joint and one solder bridge. Trivial to fix.
Except, ehm… all the chips were soldered on the wrong way around. Yet again: when it rains, it pours!
Fortunately, it was very easy to get all the chips off (using a hot air unit) and then redo the whole thing on a new panel. But it’s a shame, most panels now work out nicely these days. And this one came out really great. Oh well.
All I need to get a handle on is yours truly… doh.
