PCA component level repair

When I was in university, PCA were using mainly through-hole components. Intel was producing 8080 microprocessor and Motorola was producing 6800 with 40 pins through-hole package. Back then, I got the Weller soldering station TC202 for my soldering need. It served me well all these years.

Fast forward to now, it is time for me to catch up with the SMD technology. I watched youtube videos on SMD soldering to learn the skill and the equipment needed.

This video covers the basics.
