This is a bundle of the Arduino Mega Prototyping Shield Kit and the 0.5mm QFP40/QFN40 to DIP Adapter PCB.
Arduino Mega R3 Prototyping Board This prototyping board allows you to design a shield for the Arduino Mega or a compatible system.
This board provides many options for prototyping. Its prototyping area features 0.1" pitch rows and columns interlaced with 0.05" offset rows/columns, allowing close placement of multiple ICs (put one IC on each offset).
The board comes with all the parts needed to complete the standard indicator and reset circuits, and stackable Arduino Mega R3 headers. A small solderless breadboard (170 points) is included as a bonus.
SMT-to-DIP Adapter PCB 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 a 40-pin QFP or QFN device with 0.5mm pitch (6×6mm body). The board also includes room for 0805 SMT discrete 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 strip of 40 male pin headers is included. This strip can be snapped apart so that you can create the individual 20-pin segments needed to complete the 40-pin DIP package. If you want to utilize the 0805 component pins too, be sure to order an additional strip of pin headers using the option box at the bottom of this page.
