Well I suppose that's good enough for one night, decent amount of progress I suppose. Routing the BGA is going to be an absolute nightmare, but eh.


Also, I never thought about it, because it's zoomed in so far on the screen, but this thing is only 8cm^2, it's suuuuper tiny, hand soldering the 0402 components is going to be hell.

@lethalbit I have done some 0402 soldering with a rework station recently, it's not fun but very doable. I don't think those are going to be your biggest problem, looking at that BGA you need to route...

@dratini0 Yeah I'm probably just going to try to reflow 90% of this.

As for the BGA, yeah, and the worse it gets the more I add the rest of the connections....
