I'm working on a design that will use a SMD Prop and, naturally, I want a SMD crystal oscillator too.
I can easily hand solder the LQFP Prop but I'm not sure what oscillator to get.
I found this one on Mouser because it seems to have small "notches" near the pads that I presume I could put an iron to in order to reach the pads underneath.
I don't really want to deal with reflow ovens or hotplates at the moment so hand soldering only. Perhaps I could make the pads on the board larger, pre-tin then, then hold the oscillator down while heating up the pad. But this seems like a hack.
What do you guys suggest?
