Re: SMT sizes in µBITX

Howard Fidel

I spent the last 10 years of my professional career designing intraoral sensors for Schick/Sirona/Dentsply. We routinely worked with 0201 parts. They were too small for me to work on, but our technicians did manage to solder them. I can handle down to 0402 but prefer 0805 parts or larger.

Quoting Ashhar Farhan <>:

I tried to keep all resistors and capacitors to 1206. However, some of the
C0G caps in the filters were not available readily. Hence, we chose the
more common 0805 for those.

Not too long ago I sneezed on a pile of 0402 SMD and, after the cloud hit
the ground, I had a 100W transceiver!

I have never worked with SMT and have no idea what size various components
are. Could someone please enlighten me.
