Separate components are repaired or replaced manually. Electronic PCBs repair requires a special skills and first of all quality and handy equipment which can facilitate work.
Such equipment includes various types of magnifying lenses and USB microscope, which allow you to overview the small electronic components and to see signatures on them. This helps to set or solder these elements. Modern technologies also allow saving magnified images of needed components and making video of repair process or other operations.
Today's market offers a wide range of USB microscopes of various forms and for different purposes. It is very important to become aware of technical specifications and features of a equipment before purchasing it. Many microscopes look similar, but at the same time each is designed for the specific type of work.
