Fred Nasb draws out attention to TI’s SMD to DIP adapter board. The DIP-Adapter-EVM supports these TI packages: D or U(SOIC-8), PW(TSSOP-8), DGK(MSOP-8), DBV(SOT23-6, SOT23-5 and SOT23-3), DCK(SC70-6 and SC70-5) and DRL(SOT563-6). It provides a handy way to convert SMD components for use with solderless breadboading or to be wired directly to existing circuits.

You can read the product quickstart guide here. The adapter module lists for $10 from the TI estore.

    It would be good for other products, for example power management.

    What do you think Mats, is this any better or worse than yours? This looks to be V-Scored which would be really handy, it’s such a pity Seeed don’t do V-Scoring, you could do sooooooooo much more.

      V-scoring is really nice to have. By using pcbcart I can get that as well, and also ENIG instead of HASL for just a little bit more per cm2. Unfortunately they have a tooling fee of $40 to $80, but that free is waived on the second order with the same gerbers.

      I think I’ll order one of these boards to check out a bit closer.

    Very nice to see in a dinky item like this!
