My SMT Soldering result

Using X-Tronic hot air iron station, I was able to solder some ssop ICs (mostly the tiny ms430 microcontrollers) to their breakout pcb. The ICs are free samples from Texas Instrements.

Not bad for such small devices. Look professional to me.

Found this diagram somewhere on the Internet.  As it is said on the top, it is permitted to repost here.  Very true and interesting!
