This is a bundle of the Arduino Mega Prototyping Shield Kit and the 0.65mm SOIC8, SOIC20 and SOIC28 to DIP Adapter PCBs.
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 PCBs This is a strip of three 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 a single PCB that can be snapped apart easily, creating three individual boards:
The 20- and 28-pin boards also include room for 0805 SMT components (e.g. a bypass capacitor) and pads for easy access to ground.
- One for 8-pin SOIC at 0.65mm pitch
- One for 20-pin SOIC at 0.65mm pitch
- One for 28-pin SOIC at 0.65mm pitch
A strip of 40 male pin headers is included. This strip also can be snapped apart so that you can create the individual segments needed when these boards have been separated. This strip does not provide enough pins for all three boards (or even for the two larger boards). You can order additional pin headers using the option box at the bottom of this page.
