[sdiy] ODP: Question for the self-assembly SMD-ers here

Ø  Since you plan to make slightly more than just a prototype, IMHO the best way to do it is to find a friend locally with p&p and oven, and do  whole assembly there, not at JLC.  Roman

You’ve obviously got a more useful set of friends than me :-)

But I understand what you say so it looks like I’ll just have to pay to get the thing prototyped.  Before that I’ll maybe just attach the chip upside down with thermal glue on the PCB backside and run wires from large vias on the PCB to the pads.

Won’t have the thermal handling of the final assembly but debugs the PCB first before I pay for proper assembly.
