The BrownDog™ 031102B is a TSSOP28 to 28 pin DIP adapter. With the electronics industry’s move to surface-mount technology, many integrated circuits are now only available in SMT packages. While SMT is preferable for high-volume, automated manufacturing, prototyping and evaluation with this type of IC is difficult without a way to easily connect test probes to their contact pins. And compared to its through-hole siblings, it is difficult to remove an SMD from its circuit board without expensive hot-air rework equipment, and without damaging the component itself or the PCB. The 031102B adapter provides a convenient solution when working with TSSOP28-package devices in these situations. As a pin-to-pin adapter, a TSSOP28 component installed on the 031102B will be functionally equivalent to a 28 pin DIP device. Whether you’re replacing an existing DIP device, designing for interchangeability, or in prototyping and evaluation, the 031102B is the perfect answer.
The 031102B is made with contemporary PCB design techniques, software, and manufacturing. With electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) surface finish for conductivity and flat surface planarity, there will be no detectable difference between a TSSOP28 device (0.65mm pitch) mounted to the 031102B and an equivalent DIP device.
