Unformatted text preview: approximately three to five seconds. 4. Apply solder to the component lead opposite the soldering iron and permit the solder to melt and flow evenly around the connection. Do not apply solder directly to the soldering iron tip. . 5. Next remove the solder and then remove the soldering iron, and permit the joint to cool before attempting to move the part or otherwise stressing the joint. When properly soldered the joint should appear bright and uniform with an even meniscus. 6. If you make a mistake, don't worry! You can use solder braid (available in the ECE shop) to absorb the solder from the joint and start over. Just apply the braid over the joint, and press the hot iron against the braid and the solder. As the solder melts, it will flow onto the copper braid. 3/31/2010 Soldering my.ece.ucsb.edu/…/soldering.htm 1/1...
