We here at SparkFun love to share what we know with our customers and community. One of the ways we do this is through our classes - and we've added a new one to the ranks: The Stenciling Class!
It is definitely possible to solder tiny components using your tried-and-true soldering iron. But if you're looking to create dozens of the same board with tiny components, it is much easier to use solder paste and a stencil. In this class, we'll show you how we do it at SparkFun. During the class, you'll learn how to do your own at-home solder stenciling and use a reflow oven (or skillet). In the process, you'll create a panel of Arduino Pros (and take one home!).
We think this is a great skill to know and will help you keep your sanity while soldering fine pitch components! Hope to see you there!
