Soldering Tips

Lesson Goal: This lesson teaches you how to solder both standard size components and SMD (surface mount devices) micro components. Great soldering skills have always been important in the CR field, which is even truer in digital cameras. This can be a challenging lab, even for those with prior soldering experience. Soldering is a skill that when done right is quick, easy and painless. We teach you how to do it right!

When you complete this lesson, you should be able to handle most soldering situations, even the tricky ones. As you continue through the course your skill will improve because of your solid foundation. As an added bonus, this lesson also shows you how to use an oscilloscope for troubleshooting, as wells the secrets of building a light White Box using a Color Meter and a Nomograph. There is a lot of punch packed into this small lesson.
