I did some prototyping with arduino nano in breadboard. And then after i done with the design, I was gonna implement it in a printed pcb so i need to remove the nano from breadboard. And this is when the disaster happened.
The board is kinda hard to pull by hand, so i use a long-thin screwdriver in the gutter to pull the nano up (just like i did many times to dip ICs with no problem). And successfully detached the nano from breadboard and also broke the tantalum under the nano in the process. So the question is:
- How do you usually remove the nano board from breadboard safely? And
- The tantalum i broke is 4.7uF smd. I can't find any 4.7uF tantalum in nearby shops, but i have electrolyte caps rated 4.7uF 16v. Can i use it for replacement?
