Use SMT parts on breadboards without the need for expert soldering skills! This is a pack of 10 PCBs each of which is a strip of two QFP/QFN-to-DIP adapters with a twist. These have the patented Schmartboard|ez technology to make soldering surface-mount devices easy. Your SMT part will sit in grooves that hold it in place and already have solder in them. So all you need to do is put a chip in the grooves, apply flux, and use a small enough soldering tip.
The adapters ship as two-in-one PCBs that can be snapped apart easily, creating a total of 20 individual boards:
The boards also include room for 0805 SMT discrete components (e.g. a bypass capacitor), and pads for easy access to ground. Also, a plated hole in the center of the device area allows for the addition of solder to utilize ground pads on the bottom of the device.
- Ten for 16-pin QFN/QFP at 0.5mm pitch, 3×3mm body
- Ten for 20-pin QFN/QFP at 0.5mm pitch, 4×4mm body
Ten 40-pin male header strips are included. These strips also can be snapped apart so that you can create the individual segments needed when these boards have been separated. While these strips will provide enough for the 360 IC pins of every adapter, they will not be enough if you want to utilize all the 0805 component pins too. You can order an additional strip of pin headers using the option box at the bottom of this page. That would give you a total of 440 pin headers — the exact number needed to utilize every broken-out pin on the boards (i.e. not counting unconnected pins available for mounting purposes).
Also available in single quantity (i.e. 2 individual adapters — 1 of each).
