Soldering with our DIY reflow oven

All components are now on our PCB prototype. We need to solder all Pins. Reflow soldering is the most common method for attaching surface components to a circuit board.

  • Put the PCB Board in the reflow oven

  • Our Program control the inside temperature of the Reflow Oven to follow strict ramps. Theory ramps are describe below

  • Theory Vs Practice 😉

  • Video of Reflow oven in action (Process take around 10 mn to be completed)

  • Time to find a solution to reduce the temperature when maximum is on the go.

  • We use a TOP SECRET process to achieve that. We open the door of the oven and try to follow the descending ramp of our GUI 😉
