SparkFun SOT23 to DIP Adapter

6 pin SOT-23 to DIP adaptor. Created to take SOT23 of various pin sizes breakout to DIP. This will work with 3-pin MOSFETs, BJTs, Voltage Regulators (SOT-23-5), and various other Micro6, Micro5, etc packages.

DIP width is 0.300" (300mil) and will fit nicely into any breadboard or DIP socket. 40 Pin break-away headers are perfect for use with these custom PCBs. Machine pin headers may be a better option for IC sockets. Pad layout fits all standard SOT23 packages including:

  • SOT-23
  • SOT-23-3
  • SOT-23-6
  • Micro3
  • 5-MicroSMD
  • All other similar SOT23 packages
  • 0.34x0.46"

worked great

I needed on a prototype circuit with a small SOT23 package voltage regulator and this item was exactly what I needed to test it out on a breadboard. I'm glad this adapter was available!

Very handy adapter!!

I found these adapters awhile back and they have saved me many hours of micro-white wiring. Currently I am using this adapter to test multiple temp sensors. We may even incorporate these into the product during it early stages.

Thanks for having the right stuff when I need it!

Did what it said it would!

I purchased extra devices and adapters in order to practice, and needed them. Worked under a magnifier. Lost one 2 dollar device when it popped off - no way to find something so small on the floor. Had to re-solder a couple that passed visual inspection the first time. Lots of solder management needed, a little bit goes a long way. It was easy to fill up the pin holes while soldering the device, making it hard to add the pins later. Next round I'll add the pins first, and use a small breadboard to hold everything in place while I work.

Right adaptor at right time

Extremely helpful SMT to DIP adaptor that allow fast system upgrade without PCB re-layout

Comes in really handy

Just the thing for when you don't want to solder wires directly onto SOT23 pins.
