The BrownDog™ 060301 is an SO8 (SOIC-8) or 8 pin DIP to single-inline SIL/SIP adapter. Because integrated circuits are more commonly available in the SO8 and 8 pin DIP packages, sourcing components for applications that require a SIP-type device is much easier when paired with the 060301. As a pin-to-pin adapter, an SO8 or 8 pin DIP component installed on the 060301 will be functionally equivalent to a SIP8 device. In many design and repair situations when a component with a SIP8 footprint is required, the 060301 is the perfect answer.
The 060301 is made with contemporary PCB design techniques, software, and manufacturing. With electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) surface finish for conductivity and flat surface planarity, and 0.012 in. minimum trace widths, there will be no detectable difference between an SO8 (0.050 in./1.27mm pitch) or 8 pin DIP (0.100 in. pitch, 0.300 in. row spacing) mounted to the 060301 and an equivalent SIP8 device. We provide you the option of buying the 060301 adapter either with an 8 pin DIP socket installed, or with your choice of optional audio op amps installed.

We can source manufacturer-authorized components for your requirements, or install your customer-supplied parts to this adapter.
