    I recently found a circuit that steps down the voltage from 60V to 5V that I need for my senior project. I got the chip necessary for the circuit as a free sample. When I recieved the sample, i recognized immediately that this would be impossible to solder or breadboard. Is there an easy fix for this?

    The website for the chip I got is: http://www.linear.com/pc/productDetail.jsp?navId=H0,C1,C1003,C1042,C1032,C1082,P2090

    You dont need this chip to do what you want. But if you wanted to use it, you would need to use a sufboard type adapter. The surfboard allows you to solder SMD chips onto an adapter that can be used in breadboarding.

    OR, you would need to make a PCB that will take the chips package.
