Well if you have learnt how to design PCB, Now, what should be the next step??? Well, this is essential to mount components on to the PCB so that they can function well. And here it comes the SOLDERING process. Soldering is essential in most electronic devices, even with the development of microchips. Soldering is a process of joining two or more different types of metals together by melting solder. The solder metal is an alloy which is melted using a hot iron at a temperature higher than 600 degrees Fahrenheit.
Soldering was practiced as far back as 5000 years ago in Egypt. Soldering was widely performed around 4000 years ago when tin was discovered as soldering metal. The process of soldering was introduced in Mediterranean region, and was followed in the Roman Empire, Swiss and Hungarian. Soldering has improved a lot from culture to culture and generation to generation and in today’s scenario it is the best method for fabrication and assembly of microelectronics.
In this course we are going to learn SOLDERING in brief. Later in this course, we will cover PCB soldering.
