The BrownDog 190601 adapter works with both narrow and wide-bodied SOIC-28 components to convert to the 28-pin DIP footprint. This adapter is useful for upgrading and modifying devices that use 28-pin DIP ICs, when the only available replacement options are in a narrow or wide surface mount SOIC-28 package. Alternatively, when prototyping with an SOIC-28 surface mount device, this adapter provides a convenient way to connect it to a breadboard or a 28-pin DIP socket. The contact pins are press-fit into plated through-holes in the printed circuit boards, for a flush and compact form factor. Unlike other 28-pin SOIC adapters available on the market, ours does not require users to solder header pin strips to the boards first and does not have exposed pins above the top surface. Not only will this feature require less work for the end user, it also will help to prevent solder bridges and exposes sensitive electronic devices to less heat from solder assembly. There is only one step required to use the adapter with pins installed, and that is to mount the device to the board’s top surface. However, for other users that would rather use this adapter without pins installed, we provide that option as well.
This adapter is RoHS-compliant with ENIG (electroless nickel immersion gold) surface finish on the exposed copper pads, black solder mask on both top and bottom surfaces, and is made with Tg 130 minimum FR-4 printed circuit board laminate. The contact pins (when installed) are 0.018″ in diameter, and will fit in a standard 28-pin DIP socket, breadboard, or 28-pin DIP target location on a PCB. Featuring a direct one-to-one pin conversion between each surface mount pad and its corresponding through-hole pin, this adapter works with both narrow and wide-bodied SOIC-28 pin devices with component widths of 0.150″ and 0.300″ widths, respectively.
This adapter is also available with your choice of component installed to it. As an example, we have installed the Renesas 71256SA15YGI 5.0V 32K x 8 Asynchronous Static Ram to SOIC-28 to 28-pin DIP adapters for one customer. Assembled adapters are professionally manufactured to your specifications. Contact us today for a quotation!
