    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!

    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.

    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!

    Default Soldering tip for ADXL202E

    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.
