We recommend that you clean the surface-mount solder pads with a soft cloth or sponge and a small amount of rubbing alcohol.

To melt a small bead of solder onto each solder pad:

Place the tip of the soldering iron against the solder pad.

Melt solder so that it forms a dome on top of the pad.

Remove both the solder and the soldering iron tip from the solder pad as soon as enough solder melts onto the pad.
