DIY SMD Adapter
(Summer Circuits 2010 article)
In order to use an SMD device on a standard prototyping or perf board (breadboard) you will first need to fit it into some sort of carrier or (expensive) professional adapter board with pins at the same raster as the perf board. Such an adapter can also be made quite cheaply; we will take you through the steps using an SO-8 narrow package as an example.
