When you need a component now!
« on: August 01, 2018, 02:03:16 am »
I was making a little test circuit up this afternoon and needed a certain part.
Problem was I only had it in Xson6 package (1 x 1mm, 0.35mm pin pitch)

I thought I'd have a go at dead bugging it.  Worked a treat! Shows what you can do with a normal soldering iron and a wee bit of flux.

Impressive!
I don't think I could keep my hand steady enough.

And I thought I was doing crazy stuff with 0805's.  :clap:
STAND BACK!  I'm going to try SCIENCE!

Kapton tape is my friend! I stuck it all together on the bench first so that a wobble of the iron wouldn't send everything flying. Also meant, if I touched a wire I had done already, it wouldn't pop off again.

 :-+  :clap: what great hand & vision you got there.

Btw, I did similar but with bigger sized component, and I added hot glue around the soldered pins at the wires to reduce the stress at the solder joints as we move the cables when using it.

Here what I mean, marked with dark blue circle where I put the hot glue surrounding the chip at the soldered wires.

Nice work!

The smallest packages I've deadbugged were 0.8mm packages (ethernet transformer). I wanted to breadboard a circuit but didn't have any adapter boards that would fit the package.

Advantage: 0402 termination resistors fitted perfectly between the legs of the package. But it was real fiddly to get all wires attached.

Can't imagine if the pitch shrinks even more.. :-/O

That exists?

I've got to imagine even if it does, the insertion loss will be ass. ???
