One of the most fun things about running adafruit is all the stuff we’ve learned about manufacturing electronics. Sure you can always just get a factory to do it all for you, but the more you know about the process the better prepared you’ll be even if you outsource it all!
We’ve been posting here and there about how to make stencils on a laser cutter, techniques for fiducials, and running our pick and place but now we’ll be setting aside mondays as the day you can expect to see us highlight a tip, trick or technique. We’re going to start out with some SMT basics, this mini tutorial is about SMT solder paste refrigeration and how we do it in our shop.
