BGA Hand Soldering Uses Tombstone Resistor Technique, Demands Surgical Precision

Most Hackaday readers will be a pretty dab hand with a soldering iron. We can assemble surface-mount boards, SOICs and TSSOPs are a doddle, 0402s we take in our stride, and we laugh in the face of 0201s. But a Twitter thread from [Greg Davill] will probably leave all but the most hardcore proponents of the art floundering, as he hand-wires a tiny FPGA in a BGA package to the back of a miniature dot-matrix LED display module. As far as we can see the module must once have had its own microcontroller which has been removed. We’d guess it was under an epoxy blob but can’t be sure, meanwhile its pads are left exposed. The Lattice LP1k49 fits neatly into the space, but a web of tiny wires are required to connect it to those pads. First, [Greg] populates the pads with a set of “tombstoned” tiny (we’re guessing 0R) resistors, then wires them to the pads with 30μm wire. He describes a moment of confusion as he attempts to tin a stray hair, which burns rather than accepting the solder. The result is a working display with a new brain, which surprises even him. We’ve seen more than one BGA wiring over the years, but rarely anything at this scale. It’s worth mentioning that [Greg] was behi...

Previewing 2020 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Top 40 starting pitchers show more high-end depth than you might suspect, but Gerrit Cole leads the way

Starting pitching was the story of the 2019 Fantasy Baseball season. You were in good shape if you had it and bad shape if you didn’t. The proliferation of the long ball combined with new standard practices for usage made the ever-widening gap between the haves and have-nots the biggest determinant of Fantasy success. Each of the pitchers depicted here has what I’d consider to be ace or near-ace potential. These were the pitchers those of us who didn’t have pitching were continually denied in trade attempts. About a quarter of them missed significant time, which is one of the expected pitfalls of investing in pitching, but there are enough of them for you to grab three or four without completely selling out for the position. And some others who fit that description couldn’t even make the cut. Kyle Hendricks, Mike Minor, David Price, German Marquez, Domingo German, Robbie Ray, Luke Weaver, Jake Odorizzi, Marcus Stroman and Dallas Keuchel are among the names I presumed would be in my top 40 but aren’t. 12 Fiber Mpo Trunk Cable High Quality Supplier Chances are, then, you’ll be able to grab five pitchers (whether in the top 40 or beyond) with ace...

As the quest for better sleep leads an increasing number of consumers to invest in better

As the quest for better sleep leads an increasing number of consumers to invest in better bedding, latex producers are preparing for a new wave of growth. To meet this rising demand, companies are stepping up their product development efforts and creating new formulations and constructions with enhanced features, such as advanced zoning and performance additives. At the same time, they are broadening their lineups to include more accessories, such as pillows, and adding production capacity and warehousing space to increase their ability to satisfy customers’ demand quickly and efficiently. In markets throughout the world, latex suppliers also are stepping up their marketing efforts, investing more in digital, print and video tools to educate bedding makers, retailers and consumers about the benefits of their products. As part of this effort, many producers have initiated or strengthened participation in certification programs that document their efforts to source the latex for their products in a sustainable and responsible manner. MORE ON THE CORE This autumn, BedTimes has examined trends and innovations in three component categories — innersprings, polyurethane foams and latex...

A Robinson Township woman is charged with stealing millions of dollars from the monuments and engraving firm where she worked, federal prosecutors in Pittsburgh say. Federal prosecutors say a cashier at Matthews International stole at least $9.5 million from the monuments and engraving company during her 16 years there. An attorney for the 55-year-old Robinson Township woman called it “an unfortunate situation” and said she is cooperating with authorities. These are very, very serious charges, and we’re handling them in a very, very serious manner,” attorney Phil DiLucente said. Mills is scheduled for a March 15 plea hearing in federal court. DiLucente did not say if she would enter into a plea deal. “She has taken every action possible to attempt to place herself, the company and the government in the best position possibl...

Skoolie! How to Convert a School Bus to a RV PM_Logo PM_Logo

Gear-obsessed editors choose every product we review. We may earn money if you buy from a link. How we test gear. My first school bus conversion (skoolie) was an escape. I was living under the dual thumbs of my student loans and mortgage, working two jobs to pay for a life I didn’t have time to enjoy. After a crash course in turning a 16-seat school bus into a dwelling, I had both an outlet for adventure and an income source I loved (West Virginia’s top-rated Airbnb since 2015). Why on earth did I turn a retired school bus into a mobile tiny home? Simple: Big yellow buses are cheap and durable. A used bus at auction goes for about $2,000 to $5,000—about 10 percent of the cost of a used RV. And where RVs are designed to be lightweight, buses are designed to work. That gets you a steel-framed body and steel paneling on top of a heavy-duty commercial truck frame. And under the hood, most school buses feature commercial-grade diesel engines that have been reliably maintained by fleet mechanics. My book, Skoolie!: How to Convert a School Bus or Van into a Tiny Home or Recreational Vehicle, covers every step of the process, along with every hard-earned time-, sweat-, and money-saving ...
