How to solder CP2102 QFN without hot air on Axon2
« on: May 17, 2011, 12:24:30 AM »
Hi,

So as I mentioned in another thread a while back I fried my CP2102 on my Axon. I just ordered a new one and will be arriving tomorrow.

My Question is:

How can I do solder it/unsolder the old one without a hot air gun? Removing it shouldn't be that bad since I can just head the chip itself with my solder. But how do I install it back on the Axon?

Forget I even asked. Ended up de-soldering some of the Pins that I need! Actually just one pin :( then I got angry and removed the USB port as well so I don't get reminded of the CP2102 :D

BTW for everyone never and I mean never plug in your Vin into 3.3V by accident!

Also, just found out you can use alcohol to remove flux (Isopropyl Alcohol), I used 70% and it works.
