The BrownDog™ 031101B is an 8 pin DIP to SO8 (SOIC-8) adapter. In certain cases, a component available only in an 8 pin DIP package is the appropriate replacement for an SO8 device. Without the 031101B adapter, such a component is not a viable replacement for an SO8 IC. As a pin-to-pin adapter, an 8 pin DIP component installed on the 031101B will be functionally equivalent to an SO8 device. In many design and repair situations when a component with an SO8 footprint is required, the 031101B is the perfect answer.
The 031101B is made with contemporary PCB design techniques, software, and manufacturing. With this adapter, there is no detectable difference between an 8 pin DIP device (0.100 in. pitch, 0.300 in. row spacing) mounted to the 031101B and an equivalent SO8 device. We provide you the option of buying the 031101B adapter either with or without an 8 pin DIP socket installed. If you need an IC mounted to this adapter, contact us for a quote. We can source manufacturer-authorized components for your requirements, or install your customer-supplied parts to this adapter.
