  • On all except the VSSOP8 package, which this appears to be (Fig 4).

  • Fantastic method! Much better than hot air for populated boards, in my opinion. After a few good runs with a $20 hot plate, I found an old scientific hot plate like you’d find in a chemistry lab, and they seem to have very good temperature uniformity and stability. The downside is cost if you buy them new, but if you can find one used or surplus they work very well for this!

No public wish lists :(
