Going over yesterday’s work, found that I’ve broken one of the pads from the PCB. I remember hearing an odd sound yesterday and thought it was a leg snapping off the chip and being relieved that it wasn’t. Think I had the iron set too high. Tried to fix it but now the leg is snapped off.

Looks like I’ll need to but another barebones kit and EP4CE 15E22CBN.

Moral of the story; treat the IC legs with a feather touch and remember to turn the iron temp back down.
