TLC 5920 48 Pin SSOP solder
April 3, 2010
I managed to get my 5920 on my breakout board. It took about 17 minutes which I am quite proud of. This is the LED driver I picked up from SD Electronics last week. It lets you control a number of LED’s at once. I am using it to control a number of motors rather than LED’s using H-Bridge chips to power the motors. It should work but I haven’t completed the schematic yet just going to try for a prototype to see what happens. Fingers crossed I don’t wreck an H-Bridge those things are expensive.
The other chip I ordered from Texas Instruments is the 5940 which was shipped two days ago so I expect that to arrive soon. I am quite excited to see the differences between the two considering how close they are to one another.
Here’s a before and after of the soldering.
I hope there is never a shortage of rosin flux or I’m gonna be in trouble.
