Here is the set of slides I used for my Small Dish Azimuth Drive presentation at EME2016 in Venice. You can download the full proceedings, and view the actual lectures, via the EME2016 website.

The detail presented in these slides is more current than the submitted printed paper, and reflects work until mid August.
Surface Mount - Moving on

Here is the slide set used at the RSGB 2014 Convention presentation on Surface Mount techniques.

Surface Mount for the Terrified

Surface Mount techniques.

The Resources list I passed around the hall is here.

Update on the solder rework station mentioned in my slides (above). I have since found (and bought!) a UK sourced version of the same product which appears to meet UK regulations - sold under the brand name Maxtra 898D, which you can query on a well known auction site.

Note: Some of these files are quite old, and I no longer have many of the originals. If you want to discuss any of them, please contact me via the link on the home page, not via e-mail address contained within the various papers. I do still have the software files, but no longer have the PCB files and layouts in a soft form.
