Surface Mount is Easy

Using SMD or surface mount components is often regarded as difficult and to be avoided at all costs - but that is a great waste.
Not only are surface mount devices relative easy to solder they also open up a world of sophisticated devices for you to use - from accelerometers to high performance microcontrollers.
Prototyping and soldering these devices might use a different technique from the normal soldering style - but it is not difficult. All you need is a good soldering iron and a steady hand.
This page summarises my views and techniques on using these components. It is aimed at the hobbyist who might want to assemble a few projects using some surface mount devices and does not want to turn it into a major production.

I've used Metcal MX-500's at work for about 12 years now, and really love
them. I'm looking to do more electronics work at home when I retire
soon, and need to replace my ancient Weller WTCP station. It works
great, but isn't really suited to fine SMT devices. The dual ports on
the Metcal also make it easy to switch back & forth from a fine tip to
something a bit more brute force. I do a lot of RF work, with heavy
ground planes, and the Metcal works fantastic for that sort of mixed
application. I've used a variety on irons in the past, from Ungar's to
Antex, PACE & Weller. Nothing I've tried compares to the Metcal.Extreme Surface Mount Soldering by doctek

So you're thinking of building a super-widget and wanted to use the latest QFN / MLF (micro lead frame) package parts. But then you actually LOOKED at one, realized how tiny it really is (Picture 1), and decided no way can I solder that! Think again! This instructable will show you how to design and build a circuit using truly tiny SMT devices. Not only will I show you how to build your own Hot Plate Soldering System capable of soldering the tiniest surface mount components using lead-free solder, you will learn to design the footprints, stencil on solder paste, and solder the components. I'll also point you to cheap sources for design software, PC boards, solder paste, and stencils.Better Soldering

Anyone know of a SMD soldering kit of some sort? I know there's the alternative of designing a fake pcb with a bunch of footprints for a variety of smd components, but I don't want to go through that...

Detailed Description
Here's the perfect way to gain experience in soldering, identification and use of Surface Mount Device (SMD) technology. This kit features 32 SMD components, including 3 SMD 8 pin ICs, microprocessor IC, capacitors, resistors, transistors and a LED. The first 24 components are parts used to gain ample soldering experience with SMD parts as you solder the various parts onto the practice section of the PC board. The last 8 SMD components are used to make an IC type dual LED flasher. This section of the kit flashes a dual color SMD LED. It flashes red then green from the same LED. Not only do you learn to solder SMD parts but in the end you have an attractive and functional SMD dual color LED flasher to show for your effort. Operates on one 9V battery (not included). Size of PC board: 2'' x 3''. Complete with all parts, PC board and instructions. A super value! Skill Level 2. This kit requires soldering of components to the PC board while building.

We hope this short manual will help explain the basics of Soldering. The emphasis will be on the care and use of equipment.
Soldering is accomplished by quickly heating the metal parts to be joined, and then applying a flux and a solder to the mating surfaces. The finished solder joint metallurgically bonds the parts - forming an excellent electrical connection between wires and a strong mechanical joint between the metal parts. Heat is supplied with a soldering iron or other means. The flux is a chemical cleaner which prepares the hot surfaces for the molten solder. The solder is a low melting point alloy of non ferrous metals.

Solder and Flux
Solder is a metal or metallic alloy used, when melted, to join metallic surfaces together. The most common alloy is some combination of tin and lead. Certain tin-lead alloys have a lower melting point than the parent metals by themselves. The most common alloys used for electronics work are 60/40 and 63/37. The chart below shows the differences in melting points of some common solder alloys.

This instructable is about two things: How to build and use a Hot Plate Soldering System, and general guidance on how to design circuit boards using surface mount parts. All the information you need for successful surface mount design and construction. Throughout this Instructable, many sources will be cited: like Newton, I truly stand on the shoulders of giants! (That's another way of saying others have already worked most of this out.) What I'll do is explain the methods I've used successfully to build tiny surface mount circuits. The focus is on specifics, not generalities. I believe the method and tools I'll describe are the most economical available which will yield satisfactory results.

I figure I can get a Metcal on eBay for a reasonable price if I'm
patient. However, it occured to me that they've been around for at least
12 years, and there _might_ just be something better out by now. I know
Metcal also has a new design out with a display. It apparently has more
power, but I think it works with the same tips.

I'm willing to spend a couple hundred bucks for a really good setup.
That probably sounds absurd to a lot of folks, but if you've ever
struggled soldering something, & then tried a Metcal, it's worth a bit of

Ersa i-CON 2 Digital Solder Station, SMD de-soldering

i-CON 2 Digital Solder Station with 150 W, i-TOOL solder iron and CHIP TOOL for SMD de-soldering

i-CON2 offers all the value- added features of the revolutionary i-CON in a double iron digital station with multiple soldering and / or desoldering tools for maximum fl exibility. Three versions of this new double station are offered standard and differ only in the tool packout:

1. i-TOOL and i-TOOL
2. i-TOOL and CHIP TOOL for SMd removal
3. i-TOOL and X-TOOL for TH desoldering.

Tools are automatically de- tected when inserted into the station and a pre-determined program is started.
Today’s components are built in tiny packages with even tinier pins. Many useful chips are only available with pin spacings of 0.5 mm or less. The reaction of people used to soldering old-style through-hole parts is often, “how on earth am I supposed to connect those tiny pins without solder bridges?” I’ve even seen a company produce boards in which every pin of a TSSOP was hand-soldered under a microcope using fine solder and the smallest soldering iron tip available. That worked for the mom-and-pop company that was doing it, but it won’t work for me.

The key to soldering these chips easily is the “lake of solder”. With this technique, a whole row of pins are bathed in an excess of solder, without any concern for bridges.The excess solder is then removed with solder wick, leaving only the solder between the pin and the circuit board. The result is an accurately soldered chip with minimal effort.

March 13, 2012 By Mike Szczys 54 Comments

We try to stick to the 0805 parts because they’re still big enough to solder by hand. But [Scott] shows us that it doesn’t take too many special tools to reflow fine-pitch components at home. In this case he’s using 0402 resistors, a footprint that we consider functionally impossible to solder using an iron.

The two parts of the equation that he spent some money on are professionally produced PCBs and a solder stencil. The stencil is laser-cut from Kapton, which is heat-resistant so it doesn’t warp during the cutting process. An acrylic frame holds the PCB in place, and he just tapes the stencil over it and uses a chunk of acrylic as a squeegee to evenly apply the solder paste. Splurging on the PCB and stencil means you’ll achieve tolerances which lead to success.

The next issue is placing the components. [Scott] shows off some vacuum tweezers he built

Surface mount soldering is easy, and it does not require a roomful of expensive equipment. Yes, you read correctly, it is now possible for a ten year old to hand solder a .4 mm pitch chip in less than a minute, without any prior experience. If you are an experienced student, engineer, or hobbyist, and have attempted to hand solder surface mount components before, you might think that's impossible.

One difficulty that many people associate with surface mount soldering is the need for expensive equipment. Though some manage to do without a pricey surface mount repair station, it is still widely assumed that a stereo microscope and several other specialty items that a student or hobbyist might not have are necessary. The rationale is the challenge of working precisely with the small components.

Using traditional methods, it is rather difficult to properly drill the alignment holes on the chip, hold the chip in place, and solder correctly. Surface mount soldering requires a great deal of precision. Errors in soldering are the most frequent cause of short circuits and parasitic effects.

Just Solder It
I suppose that the central message is that you should just solder the components to the board by hand using a soldering iron. This may sound like heresy but it is the simplest and easiest approach.
If you are like me and have searched the Internet on this subject you will have come across many web sites promoting soldering techniques using almost every heat source imaginable including SMD ovens, toaster ovens, infra red lamps and more. When I started on this path I seriously considered buying an SMD oven (cost >$1000) but fortunately I decided to experiment first.
I tried a hot air gun, an electric frypan and a toaster oven and found that the main problem is not the source of heat but applying the solder paste. When you apply the solder paste by hand it is almost impossible to get a consistent layer on the right spots on the PC board - too little and the component will not solder correctly and too much will create a blob causing shorts. The solder paste also tends to smear when applied by hand and that will make a mess or cause shorts between closely spaced pads. Big manufacturers will use a stencil to get the right coverage but getting a stencil made up for each design is expensive and complicated when you just want to assemble one or two boards. Buying solder paste is also a major hassle, it is expensive, has a limited life and must be kept in a refrigerator.
