This week we are exploring potential problems with electrical circuits. One source of faults within electrical circuits stems from improper soldering. Watch the video below to discover proper soldering techniques.
Our three basic steps for troubleshooting are analysis, planning, and measuring (APM). One specific technique for troubleshooting is the half-splitting method. What are some other techniques that can be applied as part of an overall troubleshooting plan?
In your original post, answer the following:
- Identify and explain one troubleshooting tip or technique.
- Identify in which step (analysis, planning, measuring) the technique would be applied.
- Not every tip will apply to every situation. Explain a situation in which your tip would be applicable (include personal examples if possible).
- Identify one potential impact of poor soldering on a printed circuit board. How would you identify the fault?
