I’ve done this before. It was a while ago and there were problems to solve but I did get it working. Then I had to set it up again and ran into exactly the same problems! At this point I cursed myself and spent hours googling to solve the same problems.. And so we arrive here where I will explain what I did for your benefit and hopefully prevent myself from going insane in the future 🙂
This weekend we were graced with two public holidays, giving some much needed time to catch up on some projects.. I managed to make two small things: first above you will see the smallest thing I have ever soldered! A lithium ion battery charger IC from Texas Instruments, the BQ24026, which comes in a 3x3mm 10SON package! I originally planned to make some breakout boards for these guys but as usual time was an issue..
