Use SMT parts on breadboards without the need for expert soldering skills! This 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 a single PCB that can be snapped apart easily, creating two 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.
- One for 16-pin QFN/QFP at 0.5mm pitch, 3×3mm body
- One for 20-pin QFN/QFP at 0.5mm pitch, 4×4mm body
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. While the single strip will provide enough for the 36 IC pins of both adapters, it 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.
Also available in a 10-pack (i.e. 20 individual adapters — 10 of each).
