My AVR HV Rescue Shield has a 5V to 12V step up converter, constructed with surface mount parts (all 0805’s and one SOIC). This video shows the board being reflowed on my hot plate, as seen through the eyepiece of my stereo microscope.

The video subject is a high voltage shield for Arduino – handy for reprogramming those chips which refuse to listen to 5V.
