Assuming you’ve been using FloTHERM or FloTHERM.PCB without FloTHERM.PACK I guess I first need convince you about why you should bother. To help me do that I’d like to introduce you to the concept … Read More

What’s black and stuck on a PCB?

Posted by John Parry

John Parry Hmmm… If you’re guessing it’s a chip package, you’re right – got it in one. Well done! OK, so what type of package is it? If you’re thinking it’s a silly question as you don’t know anything about the package, other than I’ve told you its black - that was a hint that it’s an encapsulated plastic part by the way - you’d be right. You’d need me to tell you if it had leads, and if so on how many sides … Read More
