Tirnadaptors - Surface Mount to DIL IC adaptors

IC adaptors allowing for the prototyping of Surface Mount IC's on to standard 0.1" through-hole development boards, or for replacement of DIP IC's with SMT alternatives in legacy systems.

With the introduction and widespread adoption of newer and smaller surface mount IC technologies, more semiconductor manufacturers are limiting their supply of new and established IC's to surface mount (SMT) packages only.

Despite having many advantages, such as reduced component dimension, and increased circuit board wiring density, SMT ICs can be problematic for anyone prototyping circuits on breadboard or similar through-hole prototype boards. Repairing or populating a PCB designed to take through-hole DIP (Dual Inline Plastic) components can be impossible if an IC is no longer available in a DIP package.

This range of surface mount to through-hole DIP IC adaptors overcomes these problems by allowing a surface mount IC to be soldered onto the topside of the adaptor, whilst providing a one-to-one 0.1" (2.54mm) pitch DIP compatible layout on the bottom side. The adaptors can then be soldered onto a PCB as a direct replacement for a DIP IC in a legacy system or will allow a developer to plug the adaptor directly into any 0.1" pitch through-hole prototyping board (breadboard) and prototype the circuit as if using a standard DIP packaged IC.

Our larger pin count adaptors can be used to mount several smaller pinned IC's onto the one adaptor, saving you space on your prototyping board.

 

Please note, these adaptors are currently available through our EShop in quantities as low as one off.
