    Something suitable for DIP would be great.

    There is a conversion circuit needed to change laser light into electricity before you can mount a connector in a printed circuit board.
    Searching google show's some possible matches at alibaba
    I do not click on links to that site, but you are welcome to do so.

    Pdf is saying it cannot be opened.

    Search for Toshiba TOSLINK adaptors and it will appear. You can get manf. Part numbers that will help you track down a seller.

    A chip that can slot into a breadboard rather than a SMB (surface mount board)

    Searching for that really doesn't result in any useful outcomes. I really just need a source / supplier where I can purchase one of these Toshiba TOSLINK adaptors! Seems like i'm not the only one finding it hard to come by!

    Do you need a chip or will a module such as this work for you.

    Magic

    Yes, the difference can be found by sending that question to the sales email address at the bottom of the datasheet.

    OJx - The x determines the mechanical layout or "footprint". Totally obvious

    Seriously? is it that obvious? Not particularly obvious to me what the exact differences are!

    OK
    -1 has TWO large plastic pins for PCB mounting, uses self-tapping screw
    -2 has THREE large plastic pins for PCB mounting, uses self-tapping screw
    -3 has TWO large plastic pins, no place for a screw

    See the PC Layout pattern for each.

    So basically they have a different PCB layout pattern and two of them mount with screws.

    DIP means double in-line package (of ICs), just like all the old logic chips and whatnot. The word you are probably looking for is through hole, as oposed to smd.
