More and more IC opamps are now SMD (surface Mount Device). Upgrading such SMD opamp to a Burson opamp requires extension cables.
Please take the following steps to prepare such extension cables.
Obtain a short length of data cable similar to the one shown below. They should be multi-strand for flexibility. Their length should be kept to a minimum to avoid picking up interference. Less than 10cm is usually acceptable.
Trim off the mounting legs on the Burson HD Opamp but leave about 5mm. Load each of the 8 opamp legs with solder. Don’t over do it.
- No overflow of soldering between the 8 connection pins
- No overflow of soldering underneath the opamp PCB.
