Falcon MC RTC CHIP

Post by exxos » Tue Aug 07, 2018 4:08 pm

This current Falcon I am fixing as a Motorola RTC. I have not actually seen one of these before.. And a little more annoying to the solder than the Dallas ones.

This one I cut around the edges near the bottom to take off the plastic..

all the pins were cut as normal...

Then next job is branching onto the normal desoldering which I already videoed..

As a side note, chip does seem to have a plastic cover of course, and it just seems to be hot snotted into place. It could be possible to remove the top cover as a whole without breaking it.. But I did not want to risk it and did not want to end up trying to leaver the top off and risk damaging the motherboard.
