This is the hand soldering process for attaching

resistors and capacitors to the

MyOctopus Humidity / Temperature sensor.


1. Clean PCB
2. Apply no-clean solder paste
3. Place components
4. Use Reflow Air Heater to dry & set
6. Clean Again around the chip
7. Verify connections
8. Verify i2c response

Humidity Chip:                   HDC1000 2.04 mm x 1.59 mm
Resistors / Capacitors:       "0201" 0.6 mm × 0.3 mm
Octagonal sensor board:    11mm
Available I2C config:          0x40 0x41 0x42 0x43

MyOctopus Open Source Components:

MyOctopus sensor boards are easy connect (via I2C BUS components which easily connect to a micro-controller, computer-on-module or development board (Arduino, Edison, Beaglebone, Pi etc) to quickly give your project senses. This sensor board will measure and monitor humidity and temperature in the environment.
