This is a bundle of the Arduino Mega Prototyping Shield Kit and the 0.5mm QFP48/QFN48 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 48-pin QFP and QFN devices with 0.5mm pitch. 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.
Two 40-pin male header strips are included. These strips can be snapped apart so that you can create the individual 24-pin segments needed to complete the 48-pin DIP package.
