Re: microscope for electronics use


I use an AmScope SE400-Z Binocular Stereo Microscope. But I only use it for parts that have a pin to pin spacing of 0.5 mm or less.

Everything else I use either 2.5X or 4.0X reading glasses. The smallest resistors and capacitors I use are 0603 size. I design my PCBs for 1206 parts in most cases. I do tend to use 0603 for bypass capacitors that need to be close to uP supply pins.
