TI should market those two as "build your own Analog Computer" boards :-)

There are other TI boards. If you haven't seen them here are the links- TI was giving these out at a seminar last week. And they have another one as well.

(later, at home) Just ordered a bunch of adapter boards - been meaning to get some or make some for a bit now.  I could not find anywhere in Australia that even supplied all the ones I wanted.  Adafruit's prices were good even taking into account shipping to Aus which was about 25% of the total.  Had to be very disciplined to avoid buying any of the other tasty goodies on offer there....

Thanks again, Betajet.

In fact, Adafruit do 6 x SOIC-8's for half the price of TI's board which also has 6 SOIC-8's, and a bunch of others that I'd be unlikely to use.  Adafruit, here I come.....

@Betajet - many thanks for that.  The TI ones do SOIC-8's and the adafruit ones do SOIC-16s.  I might order a few of both.  

Caleb -- hint - these would make great caption comp prizes!!

Here's the TI adapter board.  It's a 6x6 array and you snap off the ones you need.  You must have Javascript on to see the photo of the whole array.

Another good source is Adafruit.  They have some nice adapters that are SOIC on one side and TSSOP on the other so they can stock fewer parts and pass on the savings.  They have a nice collection for various packages.

I like Schmartboard.  I just got a Cypress PSoC 5LP development board with QFN-68 PSoC pre-installed.  It's a nice design and works great.  It brings out lots of I/O as a DIP with 0.1" pin spacing and 0.8" between rows.  You can also get it without the PSoC and put on a PSoC 3 instead.

No - they were unpopulated boards for general purpose use with SMDs, they had various sizes of them for 8 / 14 / 16 - pin chips and maybe larger.  I'll keep looking.

Max - I stopped by Fry's today and picked up a couploe more Schmartboards. I didn't find any of the BGA versions though. They sound pretty daring. I've got a little ARM processor in a 0.5mm pitch 16 ball micro BGA package that I'd love to experiment with on one of their boards.

David - I don't recall anything like that. Were they populated with a chip alread, or blank for you to solder your own chip on?

Duane...you may be able to help me...some time ago there was an article, I think in EET, about some very cheap SMD breakout boards offered by TI (Texas Instruments).   I lost the link and have searched the TI website but can't find them.  Do you know anything about this, have you got that link?  Thanks // David

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
