Hi all, I purchased a AM FM Radio Receiver DIY kit CF210SP and the tutorial is here.

The problem I am facing now is handling the small ic cd 9088, which is too tiny for me to handle haha. So, I am searching for a bigger version of cd9088 that can be mounted on a breadboard for convenience, but I couldn't find any. Are there any bigger version of cd 9088 out there in the market?

Have you looked at tutorials about soldering surface mount packages? You don't need a particularly fine tip, but you need a steady hand (a problem for me) to at least get the part tacked down in the right place.

If you can't watch YouTube, this might help:

If you would like, you can sent it up to me in Thailand, let me solder the part for you and send the board back.

The video keeps mentioning the words China and cheap.
You need the proper tools, steady hands, good vision and experience to solder the surface-mount IC.
