    If I have something like this :

    http://uk.farnell.com/texas-instrum...Categories&searchView=table&iscrfnonsku=false -- Which I want to hookup to my breadboard...I assume I need something like this : http://uk.farnell.com/roth-elektron...p-28-0-65mm/dp/1426166?MER=bn_para_1TP_Echo_3

    I cannot find a DIP package for the PCM1804. If I went for the SMD adapter, how do I actually connect the 1mm breakouts to the breadboard? Is there a special form of pin I would use? Or would a standard cable do fine?

    Extra points for anybody capable of finding a PCM1804 in DIP Package so I don't have to do the adapter myself!

    Hi Eric - this looks far better. Is there any UK specific suppliers of this kind of board (i am not sure of its high level name) - ideally I would want to order from Farnell.

    Hi A.
    As Max has suggested eBay.
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/bhp/soic-to-dip

    Update:
    Your IC is: Case Style: SSOP
    If you ask for a 28 ssop to dip , most suppliers should know what you require.

    This looks good - I suppose I am looking for a 28 pin version of one of these soic-to-dip then! Ebay was something I was hoping to avoid in favor of a more favourable retailer.

    Not sure if Digikey supply the UK, but to Canada ALL shipments are overnight fixed cost of $8.00.
    Futurlec have them.

    I used to purchase off of Newark, now Farnell and found them fairly expensive and costly P/P.
    Futurlec supply internationally I believe and are reasonable in price.

    Search "SOIC adapter" on the Farnell or Digikey website

    I believe all the Digikey links are to SOIC-28 to DIP adapters. I believe SSOP-28 is a much smaller footprint and lead spacing.
    I did not verify this but wanted to make sure the OP checks before ordering and possible disappointment.
