@xquared and I have been thinking about doing more SMD workshops. Just want to guage interest first.
Surface-mount soldering (SMD) refers to using tiny components that are mounted on the top of the board rather than going through it (like through-hole soldering). Many modern electronics like motherboards, phones, etc. are surface mount. Learning this is awesome because you can design very small projects or repair your own electronics.
We’d show you how to hand solder SMD components as well as how to use the reflow oven that our member @packetbob made for VHS. It is pretty awesome and members use it a lot.
We’d have a couple of small projects to make and cost would likely be 10 bucks or less.
