0.5mm Pitch 32-pin QFP/QFN-to-DIP Adapter and Arduino Shield Kit
This kit allows you to design and build an Arduino shield that will use a surface-mount chip in 0.5mm-pitch 32-pin QFP/QFN package — without needing any expert soldering skills.
The kit is a combination of the 0.5mm Pitch 32-pin QFP/QFN-to-DIP Adapter PCB and the Arduino Shield Prototyping Kit.
QFP/QFN-to-DIP Adapter Features This is a QFP/QFN-to-DIP adapter with a twist. This has 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 adapter supports 32-pin QFP and QFN devices with 0.5mm pitch (5×5mm body). The board also includes room for 0805 SMT components (e.g. a bypass capacitor), and pads for easy access to ground. Also, a large plated hole in the center of the device area allows for the addition of solder to utilize ground pads on the bottom of a device.
A 40-pin male header strip is included. This strip can be snapped apart so that you can create the individual 16-pin segments needed to complete the 32-pin DIP package. The leftover headers will be just enough for the 0805 component pins. There are unconnected through-holes on the board too. If you want to use those for mounting, you should pick up another strip of pin headers using the option box at the bottom of this page.
Arduino Shield Prototyping Board Features This prototyping board features an offset through-hole pattern that provides you with greater flexibility than standard through-hole boards. This kit includes all the basic components most Arduino shields need (stackable headers, LEDs, buttons, resistors, capacitor), plus a 170-point solderless breadboard.
The Arduino headers are R3 compatible, and provided in both the Arduino offset and "corrected" 0.1-inch pitch. This allows you to make your shield compatible with either or both the official and third-party Arduino systems.
