Yeah.... I'd probably glue the thing upside down on the PCB, and then solder wire hairs from its pads to the board's traces. But I'd also use low temp solder paste, so as to not damage the part.Can you mount it 'dead-bug' style?
You may be right. But if it's firmly glued to the PCB, all the user would need to do is build a proper acoustic box around it. Then again, there's only one way to know if he did things correctly...It looks to me like you can't just solder this thing down. It needs to be mounted properly so it functions as designed.
If you let the solder flow on the pads, then place the part on the molten solder, your time exposure for the part will be less than 10 seconds (using regular 60/40 solder). Once you do this a few times, you will actually see when the part is "grabbed" by the solder and you can stop the hot air a few seconds later. With a difficult part like this to place, it should be the first part placed and soldered.I am more worried about the soldering, I will try as SLK001 suggested, although this may damage the mic, the damn thing is 260 celsius degree max for 20-40 sec, If it got damaged, I will glue it as cmartinez suggested and wire from pads to PCB. will let u know the results.
