Surface-mount soldering can be challenging; this little board may help with practice.
It has two identical sides (one green, one black) each with a QSOP-28 pad and 32 0805 pads. Each of the QSOP pins is routed to two 2.54mm pitch headers with an 0805 footprint in between. This could be useful for adding a pull-up or -down, a resistor in series, or a bypass capacitor. Two sets of 4-pin headers allow input of power and ground (or any other signal); all the pins of these headers are connected, but they can be disconnected by cutting the exposed track. Two 'configurable' sets of 0805 pads allow easily adding LED+resistor or capacitors.
The board comes bare, without any components. Order any cheap 0805 and QSOP packaged ICs from any online distributor to get started.
This item will be shipped to you together with the next scheduled shipment, normally on the 15th of every month.
