PCB-SMT adaptor boards


All the really good integrated circuits are in surface mount packages. The adaptors shown below allow prototyping on standard 0.1 inch headers or with wires.

The boards

We used ExpressPCB software to design the boards and produce them. To open the dsign files, you will need to download software from ExpressPCB. The red and green images below are screen captures from the ExpressPCB design software showing all the connections, text, and header vias. Approximate cost is $59 for three of the boards shown. The cost per adaptor is very competitive.
