Basic workshop. No prior knowledge needed.
For people afraid of surface mount assembly/rework. Think you don't have the tools? Think you can't manually place 0402s? Everything is possible with patience and practice. The equipment is minimal and you probably already have it. We're going to build two switch-mode power supplies (one step-up, one step-down) using tiny SMD parts. They're going to work. We'll learn the answer to THERE'S A SHORT ON A TINY PART OMG WHAT NOW? After this, you'll no longer need to be scared of SMD. Materials cost 15€ per kit.
