    Hello all,

    I have to use a 555 with an SOIC footprint on a breadboard. Does anyone know of a cheap place to buy soic breakout boards?

    Thanks!

    Not cheap, but look up Schmartboard.

    I hate paying a lot of money for adaptors... plus I like the leads to come out on 0.1" centers. I get lots of 2-sided adapters thru EBay from China, like these:

    Different pattern on each side, dirt cheap... shipping takes 2-3 weeks so I lay in a stock.

    That image is from a place called "uincelec," search them if you wish. 20 pieces are $4.99USD free shipping worldwide.

    I have yet to use that particular vendor, I previously used dig-ole but they got a little pricey.

    1.27mm pitch devices are easy, you bend every other pin upwards and solder the remaining to their pads on a normal 2.54mm protoboard, and use wires to solder the rest of the pins. I also did a few 0.8mm and 0.65 devices like this up to 14 pins each, but that was a real PITA.

    You could solder wires to the pins and then use an IC holder....

    That is not easy and not durable.

    But that does work ok if you solder 4pin single headers into
    the holes. Then you have a "DIL IC" that can be plugged into a breadboard etc. :)
