blog 183=Soldering
« on: October 29, 2012, 06:25:54 am »
When soldering a through-hole IC, I first solder two diagonally opposite pins, then push the IC into place while re-heating the two pins (one at a time, of course). I believe this to be important especially when mechanical vibration may be an issue. After the other pins are soldered then I retouch the first two pins with a TINY amount of solder to ensure a good connection. Also you forgot to mention over-heating that can remove the pad from the board.
