    Hi, I am planning on testing a chip that comes in a TSSOP package. This is impossible to breadboard without an adapter, however, I am having trouble finding where to buy these adapters. I noticed Farnell.com sells the adapter (http://se.farnell.com/roth-elektronik/re933-02/adaptor-smd-tssop-14-0-65mm/dp/1426181?in_merch=true&MER=i-9b10-00001460), but their site can only be used by companies (not poor students or hobbyists). Does anyone know how I can search/find this type of item on Mouser or Digi-Key?

    I do know Digi-Key sells these surfboard items (http://parts.digikey.com/1/parts/11756-kit-surfboard-ic-assortment-32pc-mk-9000.html), but they cost $100 for a set and I only need one size, so it seems like overkill.

    Any suggestion on how to just buy a few of a single size. 14-pin in my case?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Being UK-based I would pick one up from RS (available from ~£12 for a single multi-adapter wafer). Wasn't aware of the ordering policy of Farnell, if you are a student couldn't you order through your school? Failing that, have you a local store you can have a trip down to?
