My First, Hand Soldered SMD PCB with FPGA – Papilio Duo

This is my first experience with hand soldering SMD components. Assembled the Paplio Duo board by completely hand soldering and it works! I could not have done it without the help and guidance of my fellow members at RLAB. So proud to be able to successfully solder the Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA on this board :).

Website for this Open Source board is at Gadget Factory .
