7.5.2 Soldering Surface Mount Gull Wing Components, Continuous Flow Method
This procedure covers the general guidelines for soldering surface mount Gull Wing components.
Place component and check alignment.
Apply solder to the continuous flow solder tip to create a convex bead of molten solder.
Slowly move the tip over the row of leads to form proper solder fillets at each joint.
This procedure covers the general guidelines for soldering surface mount Gull Wing components. There is basically only one type of Gull Wing component. Whether leads are on two sides or four sides, or whether the component is large or small, the soldering principles are the same.
Minimum Skill Level - Intermediate
Recommended for technicians with skills in basic soldering and component rework, but may be inexperienced in general repair/rework procedures.
Conformance Level - High
This procedure most closely duplicates the physical characteristics of the original, and most probably complies with all the functional, environmental and serviceability factors.
