SOIC to DIP thru-hole adapter
Hi, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, though the part is a linear regulator. I am trying to buy an SOIC to DIP thru-hole adapter. My part looks like
this, please see the pdf http://focus.ti.com/lit/ml/msoi002h/msoi002h.pdfI was looking at this website, http://www.logicalsys.com/smt-to-thru-hole-adapters.asp Which
part number is the right one? Also, regarding 300 mil span vs. 600 mil
span DIP, which one would fit onto a standard breadboard?
Also, if you'd like to suggest a better adapter I'd be open to those suggestions as well.
for the elementary questions, new to this. Thanks in advance
For the 8-pin, 150-mil body SOIC, you'd want to use the PA-SOD3SM18-08. The 300-mil vs. 600-mil decision is necessary only for the 24- and 28-pin DIP; these DIPs are commonly found in both 300-mil and 600-mil body widths, and if you're looking for a drop-in SMT adapter for an existing PCB with a DIP footprint, you'll need to choose appropriately. In your case, the 300-mil will work fine with most standard breadboards.
Another option is the line of Surfboard products from Capital Advanced Technologies (see http://www.capitaladvanced.com/products.htm). These are usually in SIP format rather than DIP, but would still work fine with your breadboard. They also have the advantage of being available for a wider variety of SMT packages, and are reasonably inexpensive.
Both should be readily available from Digi-Key.
Thanks, I should have known because it's the only 8-pin option. Well, it's good to ask anyway just to make sure. Then I looked back at the diagram and saw that indeed the width was 150 mm. Soldering will be a ton of fun, I can tell. One more thing, I notice the diagram says 0.157/0.150, how did you know to use the bottom number?
