Softrock Ensemble Night 4

Last night I worked on the I/Q frequency divider. Only a couple of new parts on the top side of the board.

This is my homebrew surface mount part holder. aka: board with a large paper clip

As you can see it does a pretty job holding down that chip.

The new 1/32" tip for my Weller iron showed up yesterday. That made this pretty easy work. I have a 1/64" coming from another vendor.

I connected the PCB to my oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer and I am seeing the proper signals and 90 degree phasing of the I/Q signals.
