Keywords:SMT to thru-hole adapter? PCB? RoHS?

Logical Systems Corp.'s PA-SOD3SM18-08, an SMT to thru-hole adapter for small-outlined IC (SOIC), is being touted as is a simple solution to several electronic assembly problems.

It allows the SOIC version of a device to be used in its DIP footprint, extending the life of existing PCBs.

In production, it is helpful when obsolete DIP parts cause redesign and recertification. It can be populated onto an existing PCB and fill the gap while the redesign and recertification process occurs.

In prototyping, it allows a SOIC to be breadboarded with a DIP footprint and socket. Parts are easier to probe and remove.

The PA-SOD3SM18-08 adapter is RoHS compliant. It accepts 8pin SOIC devices with body widths of 150mil and 210mil.
