CIRCUIT ASSEMBLY AND
ADVANCED SOLDERING TECHNIQUES

DATES: DEC. 1, 2019 - JAN. 1, 2020

COST: $1,000

COURSE OVERVIEW

This 5-day hands-on course will prepare students with the fundamentals of soldering electronic components according to the IPC J-STD-001 specifications along with experience utilizing advanced skills and resources to expedite the assembly of circuits. The course begins with the basics of soldering which includes covering the necessary tools and equipment required and how to properly maintain the equipment. Students will utilize the equipment and development boards provided onsite to learn the proper techniques for establishing solder connections on through-hole and surface mount components, connectors, and cable wiring harnesses. The students will then practice the installation and removal of microminiature components on COTS devices utilizing the techniques taught in the throughout the course. The final portion of the course is designed to teach the students the proper way to utilize the equipment and advanced techniques for reflow soldering which can significantly reduce error and assembly time.
