i am getting *so* much rework practice out of the current board design on the bench.
first batch reflow cycle was bad, baked the flux out before reaching temperature
tried to rework those, because shorts all over the place, but gave up after three days.
@x44203 i do, yeah. i don't like the crackling from the stress it makes otherwise. also it's got so much copper pours and also big inductors that i can't handle it for a while anyways.
@steph it's not *that* bad, and you can make the switchnode smaller with a different layout too. also the LDO i have on it has something like 95dB PSRR and the current sense amps 120dB CMRR, noise won't be the issue. except ADC noise, because that's really the weakest part.
@steph hey, it basically just comes down to my bad pasting skills. de-soldering and placing it again is easy. even with that really cheap hot air and pre-heater.
