Using Proto-Chip is EASY! YOU can use MANY different devices, and connect them how YOU want them arranged for a proper layout. Even cut them into pieces of circuitry to FIT YOUR APPLICATION!
Design it the way YOU want, before soldering parts on PCB. When satisfied with YOUR layout, solder them down, and cut away traces not needed in circuit, add jumper wires to other parts on the PCB. Make your circuit in less time, and less hassle, AND NOW - MORE Possibilities!!
THE BEST Surface Mount Device Designers Boards!

These are NOT "just another adapter board!"

These SMD breadboards enable you to build up a LARGER, OR smaller (see pic) more complete circuits, along with your SMD chips!

First came Proto-Chip! Our best seller! Use it for building small SOIC, 0603 to 1206 component circuitry, for new designs, or reworking modules! Ground plane on back side.

Second, THE NEW PROTO-CHIP n' DIP (on the side). 3.5" x 5' DIP and SMD pads, (2003) being redesigned as the Chip n' DIP 2! (2004)

Then the TSSOP and Rectangular PLCC Proto-Chip board was added to the product line!! (2003/4) It has been put into redesign also. (1-2005)
TSSOP and PLCC board size is 2.05" x 2.25". I have the new ones in 1.5" size and coming out 2005 with 1.75" size versions.

THE NEW PLCC ProtoBoard was designed for UCLB! A 4" x 4" 20 to 52 pin PLCC project board for micro's and controllers!! Motorola and other processors, maybe even DSP chips? It has 4 SOIC areas, a DB-9 connector, micro protochip pads to the SOIC leads and power traces, Proto-Chip pads, DIP area for sockets and other devices. Has ground plane on back side. SEE Circuit Picture below, and more on Customer Pix page! Order them for school or computer and robotic projects.

SEE the Order Links BELOW LEFT, for more description.

ORDER them ALL right here!

Proto-Chip n' DIP 2, has over 500 DIP pads to put your PIC micros, etc, on board, PLUS these packages.
SOIC-Wide & Narrow, SSOP, TSSOP32, 0.5, 0.55, 0.635. 0.4 mm pitch IC's, SC70-6, SOP32, SOT89, 223, and DIP style parts on the side!!

Similar to the original Proto-Chip, but with added packages, and DIP Proto area.

THE BEST of Both Worlds, Colliding! Where else, but THE BEST SMD Prototyping Site on the Net, if not the globe!

We now have our First Distributor! Logic Research Co. in New Zealand! See their link on the links page!

We are working on a distributor, maybe sometime soon?

Enlarged view of Proto-Chop. Shows how parts can be placed and re-arranged to design YOUR circuit for best placement and least amount of wiring!! Then solder in place, cut unneeded traces and finish wiring up circuitry!! 2 traces around board and under the chips are for power and ground connections! Less wiring!!!
This is a Prototyping circuit board you can solder Surface Mount Devices onto, and lay out YOUR OWN Circuit(s) using the existing traces, and cutting out the unwanted traces with a razor knife. You can use the more common SMT resistors, capacitors, transistors, diodes, and Standard Outline IC's, as shown. These are 0603, 0805,1206 resistors and caps on the board. (Discrete parts can also be soldered on, with a little lead bending). These parts are just placed on board, so you can find the best alternative to your design layout for signal runs, less wiring, close placement. Larger circuits can be built on Proto-Chip, than other SMD boards available. 2 traces run around outside edge for power and ground connections, and go through the middle also. Run a wire to some pads with bus wire for your ground and power feeds near the circuits. Put decoupling cas across the 2 traces, where you need them! Size is 3" Long (76mm) by 2.36" Wide (60mm) and 0.0625" thick (1.5875mm). Back Side is Solid Copper for EMC and Shielding. 1 ounce copper with HASL tin coating for easier soldering.
