Soldering SMD Components is easy if you have the right PCB. This Adapter PCB lets you use SMD SOT-89 SOT-223 components in a breadboard or for prototyping PCBs. It is great for the evaluation of SMD ICs without having to fabricate a PCB everytime.
The adapter lets you solder SOT-89 component on one side or a SOT-223 component on another side. After soldering you can use the SMD Component just like a through hole component - plug it on a breadboard or solder wires directly to the pins.
The pins are broken out to standard 0.1"(2.54mm) pitch DIP pins. The pins are clearly labeled for easy identification and prototyping.
We also have similar adapter for various other SMD Packages. Do check them out and make sure you have them before starting out prototyping with SMD ICs.
