    Hi
    as a complete newbie to electronics - I am experimenting with "1 Wire" networks and have bought a DS2408S+ 1-Wire 8-Channel Addressable Switch.

    my question is = i was hoping to mock up my cct on a breadboard but the pins on this package are far tp small and the wrong spacing.
    Can i buy an adapter so that i can use this in a normal stripboard project?

    thanks

    Mike:D

    thanks:)

    but the only ones i can find are huge prices! £3 chip
    £40 odd for the adapter :eek:

    looks like i'll have to find another solution

    thanks

    good time to practice your soldering skills :)

    what I used to do was I would solder those SO ic's onto a dip socket using some small gauge hookup wire.... then I could just plug the dip socket onto a bread board for testing or plug it into another socket on a PCB....

    Thanks
    I was thinking that some sort of dodge like that was going to be needed.

    You mean something like this?

    If the item is in stock delivery takes about a week. If its not in stock delivery can take several weeks and they are not known for answering emails but they are cheap and in all my dealings with them they have always eventually delivered what was ordered.
