EEVblog #688 – How To Rework Solder SMD Chips – BTTF Time Circuits Repair!


Dave shows you how to rework and replace a blown SSOP surface mount SMD chip with ChipQuik, solder wick, and drag soldering. And also mentions other methods using a hot air gun and pre-heater.
Can he fix the Back To The Future Time Circuits and restore the timeline to it’s original order?
Bonus rant about the lack of PDF schematics in Github projects.

The BTTF Time Circuits were designs and made by Shackspace
