Grumble grumble. I got a couple of the "free" eval boards (free except for shipping) for the opa615 for use as a fast peak detector. Unfortunately, the eval boards are not very useful as some of the resistor positions that I need to use are grounded. The eval board purportedly is designed to accommodate any of the configurations of the data sheet according to the data sheet for the eval board, sbou039. But it doesn't seem to accommodate the peak detector design.
Can anyone recommend a breadboard that I may be able to use for the SOIC14 OPA615 in a peak detector configuration?
Thanks in advance,
The eval board was designed to cover the general applications of the OPA615.
For a specific application like the peak detector circuit, your best bet is to build a board yourself. There are companies like PCB Express that offer free software tools for board layout and will also build and ship your board to you very quickly for a low cost. There are some limitations but overall they are a good resource for board prototyping and they can handle 2- to 6-layer designs.

Thanks Luke. I expect you're right about designing my own board. I have used ExpressPCB for a 4-layer board with a microcontroller etc and it worked out well, but I'm pretty slow at the design. Maybe this time I can get it done faster. :-)
