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 SOIC-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 2-in-1 PCBs that can be snapped apart easily, creating 20 individual boards for 18-pin SOIC at 0.635mm pitch. These boards also include room for 0805 SMT components (e.g. a bypass capacitor), and pads for easy access to ground.
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. You can order an additional strip of pin headers using the option box at the bottom of this page.
Also available in single quantity (i.e. 2 individual adapters).
