Any way to reattach solder pad?

by doym on Mon Aug 02, 2021 12:28 am

Hi—I was soldering a Flora accelerometer, but got too much solder on it. So I was trying to remove the extra solder by heating it and sun filming it off (with one of those soldering suction removal tools), but the solder pads came off on both sides of the sensor. Any way to reattach it to salvage the sensor?

Can you post a picture so we can see which pad you removed and how much damage you have?

Here you go—it is one of the SCL pads

I think unfortunately that pad is too far gone to be recovered. But the other SCL pad is directly connected, so you could just tie in there.
