In this guide, we will be explaining each step on how to solder basic SMD components in an easy and fun way. SMD means ‘surface mounted device’ and as the name suggests, these components are soldered on the surface of the PCB. They are also the smaller versions of through-hole components.
Note: these tips are meant for those of you who want to start soldering basic SMD components such as LEDs, resistors, transistors, and capacitors. Before starting, please note that it is necessary to have a lot of experience with through-hole soldering kits first. (A new beginner’s guide to soldering through-hole components is coming soon!)
We’re going to be making the SMD FLASHING HEART (MK144) because it is a fairly easy minikit to start with. Then again, all of the steps may relate to any other beginner SMD kit.
Head over to our manual platform and check out the guide!
