The BrownDog 030502B adapter provides a convenient way to convert an SC70-8 surface mount component to an 8-pin DIP footprint. This adapter is useful for upgrading and modifying devices that use 8-pin DIP ICs, when the only available options are in an SC70-8 package. With the contact pins press-fit directly into the adapter board, the adapter is very compact with a low profile. Soldering separate header pin strips to the board is not necessary, unlike some of the other adapters available on the market. There is only one step required to use this adapter, and that is to solder the surface mount component to the pads. However, this adapter is available both with and without the pins installed for those that require both options. See the “Pin option” menu on this page to make a selection.
This part is RoHS-compliant with ENIG (electroless nickel immersion gold) surface finish on the exposed copper pads, and made with Tg 130 minimum FR-4 printed circuit board material. The contact pins are 18 mil in diameter, and will fit in a standard 8-pin DIP socket, breadboard, or target location on a PCB. This adapter is a direct 1-to-1 pin conversion between a surface mount SC70-8 component to an 8-pin DIP footprint. This adapter is a dual-use adapter, with a VSSOP/MSOP-8 0.65mm pin pitch pad on the opposite side when ordered without pins installed. To find this other option, search for part number 030502A in our catalog.
As an example of one IC to mount to this adapter, see the Maxim op-amp MAX44263 series.
