I have been soldering an Esp-14F onto a breakout board. I start using a temperature controlled iron.
First Sn60/Pb40 @ 185* C, then I tried In52/Sn48 @ 118*C. All ended up destroying the device.
Does anyone have suggestions for me?
You need to solder each pin very quickly.
You should not place the iron for too long on the pins.
Additionally, make sure you wait some time after moving to the next pin.
You should always take this into account when soldering these chips.
The temperature of the iron doesn’t seem to be an issue, but I might be wrong.
How do you know the device is destroyed?
I hope this helps.
Thanks for your answer. You were right on. As soon as I limited the total time the iron was touching the part, it survived. Such as obvious solution!
