ok...i just finished soldering my accelerometr..
The hardest part of the accelerometr is soldering it...Since it's an smd component..it makes a life a bit difficult....

If you need to know how the sensor works ...take a look here (http://www.machinegrid.com/content/view/53/111/)

before i put up the page on soldering the sensor ...here's a sneak image preview...

Hmm seems like uve done it finally :)

Hi Ice

You hand soldered a SMD component!!!!!cool!

Did you use an ordinary Solder iron...or the ones the cellphone repair guys use....I've been trying figure out how to solder a MAX 152 ADC ( A SOP ) now for months....but didnt adventure with it....coz i wasnt sure how to solder it....

I could use some tips from you!

Yes i need some pointers too :)

how abt a "SMD soldering tutorial 4 dummies "

Great Idea Vikas... :)

haha ..thanks ..
but i still havnt shown u guys the bottom view...

no i did it with a normal solder iron ..twas difficult a bit...

abt SMD soldering ,hmmm... i dont have necessary equipment[like many of us] for it like a reflow oven .etc...

i'll be putting up a page on "soldering the accelerometer" as thats the most difficult part..getting values from it is easy. :D

ever seen the cellphone repair guys....

they use a solder iron thinner than a pencil......
i wonder where you get that from.....if somebody has it..maybe that could work!

Hy, People...

Just looking around for ADXL202E mounting tips.

A suggestion: I have glued the tiny chip on the top of
a TL072, and soldered the ADXL pins VDD, GND, XFILT and YFILT
to the appropriate TL pins, in a buffer configuration.
It is quite handy, for the DIP package is easier to insert
on a PCB, and the sensor (ADXL + TL) can be removed if necessary.
