Review: Andonstar USB microscope
A helping hand with SMD construction
The manual construction of prototypes with SMD components has become quite a challenge. It is no longer possible to inspect the result with the naked eye, since the components used these days have become too small. In this situation, a microscope is a very useful tool to have. Apart from the standard, optical microscopes, there are many USB scopes available nowadays. We've tested one of these, the Andonstar V160, in the Elektor Labs.
