Workshop Update for April 9th, 2013

Posted on Tuesday, April 9th, 2013 in Workshop Update by DP

xQFP80_0.50+0.65_DIP80

We started using a professional sourcer for our kits. Will have a full report when we get results.

Another batch of SMD breakout boards is designed. The one pictured above is of a 0.5mm and 0.65mm pitch 80pin QFP package. The two different pitched footprints are on opposite sides of the board.

    Unlike the XQFP breakout board, this looks fairly “breadboard friendly”
    Looking at small FPGAs there’s the Lattice ICE40 LP384, in 32-pin QFN or 36-point BGA. Any chance of a compatible breakout board? I suspect the BGA would need both sides…

    Be aware that this board is huge and more likely consume the whole breadboard

    Note the discussion in http://dangerousprototypes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=611 over two years ago. Going vertical is the right direction for QFP adapters on breadboards. These horizontal ones cover up too many holes.
