MSP430 Launchpad v1.5 to MSP430 Launchpad v1.4 Resolder

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about doing it for things that I don't want to blow hot air on... Like the TiWi-SL module I got... That is going to be an interesting one to solder for me. Luckily, I just bought my mom a Silhouette Cameo so I can attempt my own stencil for it at some point too. Seriously thinking about hot plating it instead of hot air.

Nice work! The little components with no marks are not fun to work with after you have disassembled them.


I've been cooking  QFN chips & boards on a small cooker.  Smallest I can do is the Itg3200 gyro.  Couple times it doesn't work the first time, and it requires another pass on the cooker with some tapping on the chip when the solder melt. I think putting a chunk of aluminum on it would be a good idea since it keeps the temperature steady.
