It al started when I found the LMC555CTP on Farnell, a 555 timer packaged in a chip scale DSBGA 1.4x1.4mm housing. Quite soon after that, mikeselectricstuff posted a small blinkie based around a supercap and microcontroller, I could do that with an 555! Then recently Ted Yapo made an article about the 555 in which he wrote "dead-bugging the DSBGA version would be quite a feat" This all concluded in me dead-bugging this blinkie together.
I started by creating a dead bug style schematic. I flipped the chip and stuck it down to some tapes because physics get weird once you get to chip scale. I then started putting on the 01005 passive components which was quite easy with a JBC C105101 tip. the hardest part came up next, making the wire bridges. If you heat up one of the sides, the other side instantly also heats up. Next up I put the capacitor underneath and soldered the 0201 LED on. I charge the circuit up to 3V and it will blink for about a minute.
